LHP David Parkinson will pitch for the Leones del Esgido (https://lidom.com/leones-anuncian-contrataciones-de-guerra-y-parkinson/). David had a solid season this summer pitching at Reading (9-5, 3.56 ERA, 24 appearances, 126 1/3 IP). He will both start and be used as a bulk reliever for Leones with an innings limit imposed before he returns stateside. Best wishes to David, another good young man we’ve come to know 👍.
