Joe D'Allesandro Is No Longer The FNG In The Sharks Bullpen
The Camden Riversharks signed RHP Frank Mata today, after he was released from the Florida Marlins earlier this week. The 27 year old Mata was originally signed by the Minnesota Twins in 2002, where he bounced around in the minors until finally being dealt to the Baltimore Orioles in 2010. He made his MLB debut that year for the O's. Mata was most recently pitching for the New Orleans Zephyrs in the Pacific Coast League, where he tallied a less than impressive record of 1-6 with an ERA of 5.24.
Mata will hopefully fill a bullpen hole left with the departure of Sharks closer Brian Stokes.
