(May 16, York, Pa.) — The York Revolution revealed today another major addition to their infield, announcing that former Mariner and 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 Seattle Mariners in 2006. He began his career the following season with Single-A Wisconsin and was named a mid-season Midwest League all-star, batting .309 on the season. Triunfel was also named a mid-season all-star with West Tennessee of the Southern League in 2010, as he quickly ascended through the Mariners system. Triunfel made his major league debut September 7, 2012, against the Oakland A’s and a week later collected his first MLB hit, a double off of Blue Jays reliever Aaron Loup.
Triunfel split the 2013 and 2014 seasons between Triple-A and the big leagues; playing for the Mariners in 2013 and for the Los Angeles 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, including a home run, which came off of Tommy Kahnle of the Rockies.
The Santiago, 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.
“Carlos gives us even more depth in the infield,” said Revolution manager Mark Mason. “A guy like him brings you experience and versatility. He’s ready to contribute, and we’re glad to have him and looking forward to those contributions.”
In his minor league career, Triunfel owns a .271 average, 49 home runs, and 389 RBI, tallying exactly 1,000 hits in 996 games.
The Revolution begin a three-game series tonight in Long Island against the Ducks before traveling for a four-game series against the Sugar Land Skeeters. The Revs return to PeoplesBank Park on May 22for a 10-game homestand featuring the New Britain Bees, Sugar Land Skeeters, and Southern Maryland Blue Crabs.
