Wild Things re-sign relief pitcher

  • April 8, 2013

The Wild Things have re-signed a key member of their bullpen from last season. Left-handed pitcher Alfonso Yevoli will return to Washington for the 2013 Frontier League season that begins next month.

Yevoli was released by the Atlanta Braves at the end of spring training. He had his contract purchased by Atlanta during the offseason.

Last year, Yevoli had a 1-2 record and 2.62 ERA with 34 strikeouts in 34 1/3 innings for the Wild Things. Yevoli was scored upon in only one of his last 17 outings.

“As an opponent, we hated to see Al trot out from the bullpen in the late innings. He carved up every opponent and he put up filthy numbers last season,” said new Wild Things manager Bart Zeller, who managed the Joliet Slammers the last two years.

“We know he was disappointed to be released, but now our goal is to help him get back to affiliated baseball quickly. He will be a valuable asset in the late innings.”
