With only days left in the 2017 NYPL season, the Lowell Spinners are still making roster moves.
During the last road trip to Tri-City, Lowell announced that starting pitcher Enmanuel De Jesus has been promoted to Greenville in High-A ball. The Drive have made the playoffs and the hope is De Jesus can help them win a championship.
In his place, two pitchers were called up to finish the year in Lowell. Rio Gomez is a left-handed hurler who the Red Sox drafted in the 36th round of this past June draft. He played his college ball at Arizona where he finished his three-year stint there with an 11-6 record as a starter. He also spent time on the Cape pitching for the Cotuit Kettleers where he went 1-1 with a 3.89 ERA. Since joining the Spinners, he has made one appearance going 1.2 IP, giving up 4H, 4R, all earned.
The other new member is really not new at all. Angel Padron is back after beginning the season with the Spinners. Padron has spent the season pitching for the Gulf Coast Red Sox where he went 2-3 with a 3.86 ERA in 13 games. Angel made one start and recorded four saves during his time in Florida.
First round pick in 2017, Tanner Houck, has been pitching well of late. Going into his last start on Wednesday night VS Staten Island, Houck had not allowed a run in his last two starts. He also struck out 18 batters in 17.1 innings of work.
First Baseman Raiwinson Lameda has been hitting .333 since the All-Star break. Several of those hits have been of the clutch variety.
With nine games left in the season, can the defense which at times has been a problem area for this team, stay away from reaching 100 errors for the year? At current they sit at 91.
With his win in relief on Wednesday night, Denyi Reyes has a 9-0 record out of the pen. He leads the league with those nine wins, and in winning percentage at 1.000.
