Eduardo Paredes –
It was no coincidence that Paredes was called up last week as he has been one of the Angels best relievers in Triple-A. Paredes before getting called up was 1-0 with a 2.22 ERA striking out 24 batters in 24.1 innings. His only issue was his control as he walked 11 batters in those 24.1 innings. Paredes also pitched fairly well in the Arizona Fall League as well.
Paredes stay with the Angeles pitching in only one game against Boston pitching 2.2 innings and giving up two earned runs and striking out one batter. His only blemish was a two-run homer by Sandy Leon of the Red Sox.
There is no doubt that Paredes will be back at some point this season. The Angels have been using several players as utility pitchers that are called up for a short time to provide bullpen depth when the bullpen has been taxed too much.
