The York Revolution announced another addition to their infield on Tuesday.
Former Seattle Mariner and Los Angeles Dodger Carlos Triunfel joined the team for the start of its seven-game road trip.
The 27-year-old Triunfel was originally signed as a non-drafted free agent by the Mariners in 2006. He began his career the following season with Single-A Wisconsin and was named a midseason Midwest League All-Star, batting .309 on the season. Triunfel was also named a midseason all-star with West Tennessee of the Southern League in 2010. Triunfel made his major league debut Sept. 7, 2012, against the Oakland A’s and a week later collected his first MLB hit, a double.
Triunfel split the 2013 and 2014 seasons between Triple-A and the big leagues; playing for the Mariners in 2013 and for the Dodgers in 2014 after they claimed him off of waivers before the start of the season. Over the course of his three seasons at the major league level, Triunfel totaled 81 at-bats, with 13 hits (a .160 average), including a home run.
The Dominican Republic native played in Triple-A the last two seasons — 2015 in San Francisco and 2016 with Cincinnati. He began the 2017 season playing in the Mexican League for Olmecas de Tabasco before signing with the Revs.
In his minor league career, Triunfel owns a .271 average, with 49 homer and 389 RBIs, tallying exactly 1,000 hits in 996 games.
