Edward Cuello returns to the RailCats ahead of the 2023 season.
Pitching exclusively out of the starting rotation, he appeared 11 times, going 3-6 with 43 strikeouts in 46.1 innings.
The Los Angeles Dodgers signed the Dominican Republic Native Cuello at 18 years old 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.
