Wilfredo Ledezma

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Wilfredo Jose Ledezma (born January 21, 1981 in Guárico State, Venezuela) is a pitcher in Major League Baseball who plays for the San Diego Padres. He bats and throws left-handed.

As of the end of the 2005 season, Ledezma has compiled a Major League record of 9-14 with 108 strikeouts and a 5.73 ERA in 187.0 innings. Most of his professional career thus far has been spent in the minor leagues.

Ledezma was originally signed by the Boston Red Sox in 1998. He was taken by the Tigers in the 2002 Rule 5 draft.

2006 season

Ledezma obtained his first win in 2006 as a relief pitcher against the St. Louis Cardinals on June 25. His first Major League start occurred on August 7, 2006, as a last-minute replacement for rookie starter Justin Verlander. He threw for 5 2/3 innings and gave up no runs to the opposing team, the Cleveland Indians. Ledezma was also the winning pitcher in game 4 of the ALCS.

One of the most bizarre moments of the 2006 season occurred when Ledezma was given a rare spot start on September 8. After giving up five earned runs in 4.1 innings, an obviously distressed Ledezma returned to the dugout and proceeded to dismantle and, literally, eat his hat.[1] The episode received little comment (aside from an awkward moment in the FSN broadcast of the game), which might well be best for everyone involved.

2007 season

Ledezma was traded from the Detroit Tigers to the Atlanta Braves for Macay McBride on June 20, 2007. On July 13, 2007, he was placed on the restricted list.[2] He had gone home to Venezuela during the All-Star break, during which he accidentally damaged his visa and passport in the washing machine. The Braves activated him from the restricted list on July 19, 2007.

Ledezma was designated for assignment on July 29th by the Braves. He was 0-2 with a 7.71 ERA in 12 appearances for Atlanta.

On July 31, 2007, Ledezma was traded along with Will Startup to the San Diego Padres for reliever Royce Ring

Padres agree on deal with Ledezma
Bard, Greene are San Diego's remaining arbitration cases
By Corey Brock / MLB.com

SAN DIEGO -- The San Diego Padres avoided arbitration on Friday with left-handed pitcher Wilfredo Ledezma, leaving the team with two players in salary arbitration.

The Padres agreed to a one-year deal with Ledezma for $620,000. Ledezma, acquired last July from the Braves, had a 6.28 ERA in nine games, including one start after the trade.

Ledezma is a candidate for the Padres' fifth starter spot in the rotation or possibly a role in the bullpen.

The Padres submitted their arbitration offers for catcher Josh Bard and shortstop Khalil Greene on Friday. Those players filed for arbitration earlier this week.

The Padres' offer to Bard was $1.85 million while Bard's representation countered at $2.5 million. Greene was offered $4 million while his representation countered at $4.9 million.

The arbitration hearings will begin Feb. 1 in St. Petersburg, Fla.

Ledezma designated for assignment
Lefty ineffective as starter; Thatcher recalled from Portland
By Corey Brock / MLB.com

SAN DIEGO - The Padres parted ways with pitcher Wil Ledezma on Tuesday, designating him for assignment.

Ledezma, who was 0-2 with a 5.04 ERA in 14 games, struggled mightily with command, especially over his six starts, where he was 0-2 with a 6.57 ERA.

San Diego has recalled left-handed reliever Joe Thatcher to take Ledezma's spot on the 25-man roster. Thatcher is 0-4 with a 7.45 ERA in 17 games with San Diego this season. He had a 2.00 ERA in eight games with Triple-A Portland.

The Padres have 10 days to trade, release or place Ledezma on waivers.

"Wil has thrown the ball well at times, and at other times, he wasn't so consistent," Padres manager Bud Black said. "I think there were flashes of what we think that Wil can do. It could [still] crystallize for him."

It just might not be with the Padres, who traded reliever Royce Ring to the Braves last July for Ledezma.

Ledezma appeared in only nine games following the trade. Ledezma worked closely with pitching coach Darren Balsley in Spring Training on his delivery in order to improve his command.

It looked like it had worked, as Ledezma had a 3.15 ERA in his first eight relief outings this season. But he struggled once he went into the starting rotation.

In his final game as a Padre, Ledezma allowed five runs on six hits over four innings in earning a no-decision on Sunday in a game San Diego won 8-6.

"He's put in the work, he's tried to do a number of things Darren has suggested," Black said. "It just hasn't happened consistently. He'll be the first to tell you that he needs the consistency to be the pitcher he wants to."

Tigers bring back Ledezma on Minors deal

By Jason Beck / MLB.com | 3/7/2014 11:16 P.M. ET

TAMPA, Fla. -- The Tigers' ties with their 2003 team that lost an American League-record 119 games seemingly ended when Ramon Santiago and Jeremy Bonderman weren't re-signed, but they have been loosely renewed. Wil Ledezma, who pitched parts of five seasons in Detroit, signed a Minor League contract to pitch for Triple-A Toledo.

The deal does not include an invite to Major League camp. The 33-year-old left-hander is expected to serve as relief depth in the organization.

Ledezma was one of three Rule 5 Draft selections to make the Tigers' bullpen in 2003. He made eight starts in 2003 and 2004, made a brief run in the rotation in 2005, then served as a valuable swingman on the 2006 team that reached the World Series.

Detroit traded him to Atlanta the following summer in exchange for Macay McBride. Ledezma bounced around six Major League teams over the next five years, last pitching in the Majors with Toronto in 2011. He spent last season pitching in Japan with the Chiba Lotte Marines.
