Josh Steven Judy (born February 9, 1986 in Morgantown, West Virginia) is an American professional baseball pitcher who is with the Los Angeles Dodgers organization.

Amateur career[edit]

Judy played his high school baseball for University High School Morgantown, West Virginia, leading them to the West Virginia State Baseball tournament for the first time in over 40 years. He also helped lead Morgantown Post 2 American Legion team to the Mid-Atlantic Regional in his final season with the club.

Judy was discovered as a collegiate prospect while participating in an off-season developmental program with MVP Baseball Academy in Morgantown.[citation needed] While working with pitching coach Joe Testa, Josh attended a workout for several college programs. He eventually signed to play his collegiate baseball at Indiana Tech, where he was coached by former Cincinnati Reds farmhand, Randy Stegall. After a 2007 NAIA All-American season, Josh was selected in the 34th round (1034 pick overall) of the 2007 Major League Baseball Draft.[1]

Major league career[edit]

After the 2010 season, Judy was added to the Indians' 40 man roster to protect him from the Rule 5 draft.[2]

On May 21, 2011, Judy was called up to replace Alex White, who went on the 15-day disabled list with right middle finger soreness.[3]

Judy made his Major League debut a day later in the Indians' 12-4 home victory over the Cincinnati Reds. He pitched a scoreless ninth inning, allowing two hits and striking out one batter.[4] On May 25, 2011 Judy was sent back to Columbus.[5]

Judy was recalled up to replace Chris Perez on July 1, 2011 when Perez was placed on the bereavement list.[6] Judy made his second appearance against the Cincinnati Reds, where he gave up his first run, a home run to Edgar Rentería.[7]

Judy was designated for assignment on December 16, 2011. Judy was claimed off of waivers by the Cincinnati Reds on December 23, 2011.
