Nunez leaves Revs

Heading into the first postseason in franchise history, the York Revolution will be without closer Franklin Nunez.

Nunez left the Revs Monday to return home to Tampa, Fla. to attend to a personal matter. He joined York mid-season this year after pitching with Saltillo in the Mexican League. He amassed a 2-1 record, 11 saves and a 3.98 ERA in 18 appearances with the Revolution.

Adam Gladstone, the Revolution director of baseball operations, was understanding about Nunez’s need to leave the team and while he was surprised, he does not harbor any ill feelings about the timing of the move. Gladstone said York has a number of players capable of sliding into the closer’s role — mainly former big leaguers Juan Padilla and Travis Phelps.

Nunez, York’s all-time leader in saves (23), was 11-for-13 in save opportunities in his second season with York. He earned an affiliated contract with the Milwaukee Brewers while playing for the Revs in their inaugural season in 2007.

Earlier this season, the righty flame-thrower was 3-2 with a 2.86 ERA in 39 games (44 innings) in the Mexican League.

Dryer and Padgett out of Game 1 lineup: Matt Dryer (bruised shin) will not make the Game 1 start against Somerset in the Freedom Division Series. Instead, Edgard Clemente is slated in the DH hole for the Revs.

Matt Padgett, who has platooned for much of the season, is also out of the Game 1 lineup mainly because Somerset is throwing lefty Joel Kirsten. Kennard Jones, who tweaked a groin Sunday, is leading off in center field.
