Miguel Celestino
Cincinnati Reds
Relief pitcher
Born: (1989-10-10) October 10, 1989 (age 25)
San Pedro de Macorís, Dominican Republic
Bats: Right Throws: Right

Miguel Antonio Celestino (born October 10, 1989) is a Dominican long reliever who plays in the Cincinnati Reds Minor League system.[5]

Celestino was originally signed by the Seattle Mariners as a non-drafted free agent in 2006. He was acquired by the Boston Red Sox along with Bill Hall in the same transaction that brought Casey Kotchman to Seattle in 2010.[6]

A big, strong frame at 6-foot-6, 205 pounds, Celestino regularly hit 94-96 mph with his fastball, topping out as high as 100 mph. He complements his fastball with two secondary offerings, a mid-80s changeup and a 83 mph slider. Throwing from a ¾ arm slot, he generates solid arm speed and extension when delivering his fastball.[7]

Celestino led the Arizona League Mariners starters with a 5-3 record in 2009. He followed with a 2-0 mark and a 0.90 earned run average in three starts and a relief appearances for the Gulf Coast Red Sox in 2010, including 28 strikeouts and 17 walks in 20 innings pitched. Then in 2010 he gained a promotion to the Lowell Spinners, where he went 2-2 with a 2.62 ERA and 28 strikeouts in 44⅔ innings.[5]

His breakout season came in 2011, when he finished with a 10-6 record and a 3.84 ERA for the Greenville Drive, including 106 strikeouts in 140⅔ innings. Additionally, he shared the South Atlantic League lead and topped all Red Sox Minor Leaguers in starts (27), leading also the Sox in innings pitched and ranking second in wins.[8]

Celestino joined the Salem Red Sox in 2012. He was inconsistent after being plagued by arm problems and an inability to throw strikes consistently, going 7-9 with a 4.68 ERA in 26 starts. After that, the Sox tried to convert him into a reliever and sent him to the Portland Sea Dogs the next season.[5]

In 2013, Celestino struggled to adapt to a long relief role and went 1-9 with a 6.13 ERA and one save in 23 games. He improved in 2014, going 1-2 with six saves for Portland, lowering his ERA to 3.07 after appearing in 23 games. He finished the year with the eventual International League champion Pawtucket Red Sox, and he seized his opportunity in the decisive game of the best-of-five series, cleaning up the final 2⅓ innings and earning the save in the 4–1 victory over the Durham Bulls.[9]

Celestino signed a minor league deal with the Red Sox in 2015. He opened the regular season with Triple-A Pawtucket[5] and was sent to Double-A Portland on June 16 of this year. He then was traded to the Cincinnati Reds on July 9. After that, Celestino was slated to join the Double–A Pensacola Blue Wahoos.[10]
