José Alberto de Paula (born March 4, 1990) is a Dominican professional baseball pitcher who is a free agent. He has played in Major League Baseball (MLB) for the New York Yankees.

Baseball career[edit]

De Paula began his career with the San Diego Padres organization. After the 2011 season, de Paula was added to the Padres' 40-man roster.[1] After the 2013 season, the Padres waived de Paula, and he was claimed by the San Francisco Giants.[2]

In 2014, de Paula suffered an oblique injury, and he did not pitch after July 23.[3] The Giants designated de Paula for assignment on July 25, 2014.[4]

The Yankees signed de Paula to a major league contract after the 2014 season.[5] He suffered a shoulder injury during spring training.[6] When he returned, de Paula pitched to a 1.53 earned run average in three games started for the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders of the Class AAA International League before the Yankees promoted him to the major leagues on June 17, 2015.[7] He made his major league debut on June 21, 2015 against the Detroit Tigers. The first pitch he threw in his debut resulted in surrendering a home run by Andrew Romine. He finished the game allowing one run in 3 13 innings. A few hours after the game, he was optioned back down to Triple-A.[8] He was designated for assignment on June 24, to create room on the 40-man roster for Ivan Nova, who was activated from the disabled list.[9] He elected free agency on November 6, 2015.[10]
