In an effort to continue to bolster their bullpen, the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday announced they have claimed left-handed pitcher Wilfredo Ledezma from the San Diego Padres. Ledezma will report to the D-backs tomorrow, at which time another corresponding move will be made.
With an 0-2 record and a 4.47 ERA (27 ER in 54.1 IP) over 25 games (six starts) with the Padres this season, Ledezma has struck out 49 batters and walked 38. Ledezma is 15-22 with a 5.16 ERA (207 ER in 361.0 IP) in 152 career games (40 starts) in parts of six Major League seasons. He has walked 176 career batters and struck out 243.
