Jonathan Albaladejo has been called up to take Andy Pettitte’s spot on the roster. This is Albaladejo’s first call-up of the year following a terrific run as the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre closer.
For the season, Albaladejo has 31 saves and a 0.96 ERA. Since June 25 he’s pitched 11 times, allowing no runs, no walks, six hits and 16 strikeouts.
Whatever he’s done in the past, he’s earned a shot. Can’t help wondering if he’s put some things together and become a different pitcher than the one New York has seen the past two years.
