The Revs have signed third baseman Chase Simpson, as York wraps up first half play with a three game series against the Sugar Land Skeeters, Friday. Simpson is in his fourth professional season, originally drafted by the Pittsburgh Pirates in the 14th Round of 2014 out of Wichita State University. The switch hitting third baseman was named an MiLB organization all-star with the Jamestown Jammers after his first professional season, and was a mid-season all-star in 2015 with the West Virginia Power, where he reached career-highs in home runs (11) and RBI (68). The Dallas, TX native began his season in Double-A, Altoona, before joining the Revs.
The Revs also signed catcher Jay Carp last week, after Derik Capitillo was forced to leave the team for personal reasons. Carp joins the Revolution for his second professional season, after playing for Utica in the United Shore Professional Baseball League last year. The 22-year-old turned pro after playing at Chaffey College in his home state of California.
