Edward Cuello joins the RailCats for his first season in 2022. A native of the Dominican Republic, this is Cuello’s first season as an MLB Partner League pitcher after spending four seasons in the affiliated ranks.

The Los Angeles Dodgers signed an 18-year-old Cuello as an international free agent in 2017 and immediately assigned him to their Dominican Summer League affiliate. In his first professional go-around, he mainly served as a starting pitcher and registered a 2-2 record, 2.40 earned run average, 23 strikeouts, and 1.044 WHIP in 13 appearances with eight starts over 45.0 innings.

Over the next three seasons, Cuello rapidly progressed through the Dodgers organization, going from the team’s Arizona League affiliate to the Triple-A Oklahoma City Dodgers. He posted his best showing out of the bullpen across two levels in 2019, going 5-1 with a 2.56 ERA, 38 strikeouts, a 0.957 WHIP, and four saves in 20 relief appearances across 38.2 innings for the Rookie League Ogden Raptors and Single-A Great Lakes Loons.
