Neptunus adds American pitcher to roster

ROTTERDAM (Neth.) - Curaçao Neptunus has added lefthanded American pitcher Trevor Reckling to its roster. With starting pitcher Orlando Yntema hospitalized due to health-problems and closer Loek van Mil recovering from an injury, Neptunus added an additional arm to its pitching staff with the additon of the former Minor League-pitcher.

Trevor Reckling, who will turn 28 later this month, played professionally since 2007. In that year, he made his debut in the Rookie League-team of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, pitching in nine games. He was then used as both starter and reliever, was 3-1 and also earned two saves. In his debut-year, Reckling struckout 55 batters in 36 innings.

Reckling played in the Angels-organization through 2012. He promoted to Single-A in 2008 (26 starts, 10-7, 128 strikeouts), then played in Single-A and Double-A in the 2009 season (26 starts, 9-9, 122 strikeouts).

In 2010, the lefthander was invited to Spring Training and promoted again, pitching in 14 games in both Double-A and Triple-A. In 28 games (all starts), he then was 7-13 with 108 strikeouts. Reckling pitched in Double-A again in 2011, then briefly in Single-A in 2012 before being released after four starts.

After having pitched briefly in the Dominican Republic in 2013, he played in an Independent League the same year and then was 4-4 pitching for Bridgeport Bluefish.

In 2015, he briefly played again in an Independent League, appearing in two games for Rockland Boulders.

In 2009, Reckling was a member of the pitching staff of the American National Team. With Team USA, he won the World Championship-title in Italy after winning the Final against Cuba, 10-5 in Nettuno (Italy). 2009 was successful for Reckling, as he also played in the Double-A All Star Game and the Futures Game and was named Pitcher of the Year in the Angels-organization.
