Working as a delivery driver for Washingtonville Pharmacy, Daniel Pezzola is responsible for creating orders and checking out customers, as well as counting and delivering medication. In his free time, Daniel Pezzola enjoys watching and attending New York Mets games, a pastime he has enjoyed with his father since childhood.
In an effort to bolster its bullpen, the Mets recently promoted right-handed pitcher Tyler Pill, a former Class AAA player out of Las Vegas. Pill, whom the team hopes to use as a relief pitcher, may end up seeing more action than planned with the team’s lack of strong pitching options. Though last season the Mets could rely on both Gsellman and Lugo, most of the team’s best prospects are minor league players.
Speaking to reporters regarding his promotion, Pill said “it was a great experience,” and one he “didn’t expect.” The 27-year-old player sat at the top of the Pacific Coast League, with an impressive 1.96 earned run average.
Team manager Terry Collins praised Pill, saying the pitcher “had good numbers in the minor leagues.” Speaking strategy, over Pill’s career he has averaged 7.2 strikeouts for every nine innings of play.
