Joe Esposito Signs With Phillies

Former Shorebirds pitcher Joe Esposito signed with the Philadelphia Phillies about a week ago. He debuted last night for the Lakewood BlueClaws and gave up nine hits and four runs in 2.2 innings of relief. – Article from the Long Island Ducks about Esposito being signed.

He pitched really well for the Shorebirds last season (1-0, 1.08 ERA), but he was not assigned to a team out of spring training and asked for his release.  Esposito pitched so well that he was promoted to Frederick for the second half of the season.  He was a little up and down in the Carolina League, posting a 1-2 record with a 4.46 ERA. 

Shorebirds will see him July 24th when Lakewood comes to Perdue Stadium for a five-game set.  It will be a little odd see Joe Esposito in the vistors dugout. 

I’m definitely rooting for Joe and it’s good to see him back in affiliated ball.
