Bartleski, Trahan join Thunder

After working with a very short bullpen yesterday, the Thunder have added Phillip Bartleski and David Trahan for the stretch run. Bartleski, a 6-foot-7, 240-pound right-hander came from the Tampa Yankees, where he was 4-1 with 2.62 ERA and 37 strikeouts in 34 1/3 innings. He walked just nine in that time.

Trahan, on the other hand, took a decidedly different path. The Yankees purchased his contract from the Sioux City Explorers of the American Association. With the Explorers, Trahan, another right-hander, was 6-5 with a 2.59 ERA and 72 strikeouts in 59 frames.

Explorers' manager Les Lancaster offered this comment through a press release:

"I am very excited that David is getting this opportunity, as we have had several clubs contact us during the season about him and I was really surprised he was not taken prior to now based on the interest we received. The Yankees are getting a quality individual with a great work ethic and plus arm."
