Totten also back in affiliated ball

Perhaps it’s because he only spent four games in a York Revolution uniform, but I completely missed Heath Totten re-signing with the Los Angeles Dodgers in the recent transaction report from Baseball America.

tottenTotten, 30, was cut by the Minnesota Twins’ organization a season ago and joined York while the team was in Lancaster. He put up a 7.94 ERA in his four outings out of the bullpen and was thought to be a potential starter for the Revs before he was quickly scooped up by the Dodgers, nearly setting the record for shortest stint with York (Steve Schmoll’s record of 26 hours will be pretty tough to break).

The Port Arthur, Tex. native went on to have a pretty decent year at Triple-A Las Vegas. He posted a 4.30 ERA in 13 starts and compiled an 8-5 record with a 37-10 strikeout-to-walk ratio. Those numbers were even more incredible when you consider he surrendered 105 hits in 73.1 innings.

Totten has been linked to performance-enhancing drugs in the past. He was suspended for 15 games in 2005 while pitching for the Dodgers at Triple-A Las Vegas. The rest of his career stats are here.

Totten’s affiliated deal is the fourth signed by a former Rev this off-season. He joins Travis Phelps (Tigers), Matt Esquivel (Indians) and Franklin Nunez (Rockies).
