SONOMA, Calif. - The Sonoma Stompers have promoted right-handed relief pitcher D.J. Sharabi to the American Association’s Cleburne Railroaders. He will be joining former teammate and Pacific Association 2018 Rookie of the Year, Kenny Meimerstorf.
“We are thrilled for D.J. He’s been a vital member of our bullpen for three seasons and is worthy of this honor. We can’t wait to follow him with his former teammate Kenny,” GM Brett Creamer said.
Sharabi, a Millbrae, Calif. native, is in his fourth season of professional baseball. In 2018, he went 8-1 with a 2.45 ERA, collecting 149 strikeouts in 134 innings. The season before, Sharabi appeared in 25 games and 39.1 innings striking out 49 batters.
The San Jose State Spartan started his professional baseball career with the Great Bend Boom in the Pecos League in 2016.
In five games for the Stompers this season, Sharabi collected nine strikeouts in six innings pitched.
