After 11 seasons in the minors, former Sahuarita pitching star Manny Barreda is headed to the big leagues

  • Updated

Manny Barreda

Another Southern Arizonan has made the big leagues.

The Baltimore Orioles announced Tuesday that they're calling up Manny Barreda, a 2007 Sahuarita High School graduate who recently pitched for Mexico in the Olympics. The right-hander will join Baltimore's bullpen.

The 32-year-old Barreda has impressed in minor-league ball this season, posting a 4.08 ERA in 24 appearances at Double-A Bowie and Triple-A Norfolk, two of them starts. He signed with the Orioles organization out of the Mexican League, where he was pitching for Tijuana.

Barreda made 277 minor-league appearances in 11 seasons with the Yankees, Brewers, Braves and Orioles organizations. He has also pitched with Tijuana, Culiacan and Los Mochis.

Barreda is the second Southern Arizona high-school product to make the big leagues this season. Right-hander Andre Jackson, a Cienega High School graduate, made his major-league debut with the Dodgers last month. Former Arizona Wildcats Alfonso Rivas and Tylor Megill joined the Cubs and Mets, respectively, earlier this season.
