The New York Yankees signed pitcher Domingo Acevedo prior to the 2013 season. He made modest progress at first, but between the Staten Island Yankees and the Charleston RiverDogs in 2015, he went 3-0 with a 1.81 ERA in 12 starts.
In 18 starts between Charleston and the Tampa Yankees in 2016, he went 5-4 with a 2.61 ERA.
For the first time in his career, he pitched in both AA and AAA, with the Trenton Thunder of the Eastern League and the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders of the International League, as well as in Tampa.
Between the three stops, he went 6-6 with a 3.25 ERA and 133 innings pitched, his first season with more than 100.
In his first 11 games with Trenton in 2018, he went 2-2 with a 2.84 ERA. He pitched for the World squad in the 2018 Futures Game, and he was called up to the big leagues for the first time a week later, on July 21st.
He was only there for a day and was just there as insurance in case the Yankees needed a lengthy reliever, but it was his first experience of the major league environment.
He was sent back down at the conclusion of the day because his services were not required in the game.
He would have to wait until June of 2021 to earn another chance at the majors and make his debut.
He had become a free agent after the 2020 season, which he spent at the Yankees’ alternate training complex, and had signed with the Oakland Athletics.
Before being called to the Show, he started the year with the AAA Las Vegas Aviators. On June 21st, he made his major league debut, pitching a scoreless inning of relief in an 8-3 loss to the Texas Rangers.
