After years of bouncing around various minor league systems, Edward Paredes was acquired by the Dodgers via the Rule 5 draft in December 2016. After stints in Tulsa and Oklahoma City, he made his MLB debut against the Minnesota Twins in July 2017, pitching a scoreless inning to earn the win. He finished the 2018 season 1-0 with a 3.24 ERA.

Regular Season Recap

Paredes saw limited action in 2018, and was less impressive than in 2017. In only 15 games, the Dominican lefty ended up with a 5.87 ERA on the year. Even then, he still managed a 2-0 record, and his bloated ERA belied the fact that he didn’t allow a run in 13 of his 15 appearances. All the same, he was designated for assignment on July 11.

How’d He Do in October?

Given he was designated for assignment in July, nothing. Unless you count his electing free agency on October 15.

What Lies Ahead

Paredes signed a minor league deal with the Philadelphia Phillies on January 4.
