Player Profile: Jose Arredondo

I have one card of Jose Arredondo, from 2010 Upper Deck.

Playing career: Jose Arredondo pitched for the Angels and Reds from 2008 to 2012, putting up very good numbers in his 214 games – 22-11 record, 3.27 ERA. However, he pitched poorly in the minors in 2013 and also was suspended for disciplinary reasons, and appears to have quickly worked his way out of baseball.

Blog synchronicity: This is the 2011th post on this blog. In 2011 Arredondo pitched in 53 games for the Reds, all in relief, going 4-4 with a 3.23 ERA.

Where he is now: He does not appear to be pitching this year. Anyone know where Jose Arredondo is now?

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is fourth when you type Jose Ar, between Jose Arcadio Buendia, a character in a Gabriel Garcia Marquez novel, and Jose Ardon, an Organo Gold salesman. Another prominent Jose Arredondo is an investment banker at Blackstone.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Brian Bocock.
