Todd Richard Redmond (born May 17, 1985) is an American professional baseball pitcher for the Toronto Blue Jays of Major League Baseball.

Professional career[edit]

Minor leagues[edit]

Redmond was drafted by the Pittsburgh Pirates in the 39th round of the 2004 MLB Draft. Prior to the 2008 season, he was traded to the Atlanta Braves for Tyler Yates.[1]

Redmond threw a no-hitter for the Triple-A Gwinnett Braves against the Louisville Bats on May 28, 2010.[2]

Redmond spent parts of eight seasons in the minor leagues. He was in his fourth season with the Braves' triple-A affiliate in Gwinnett before being called up for the first time in his career on June 17, 2012.[3] He was optioned back to Gwinnett on June 21.

Cincinnati Reds[edit]

Redmond was traded to the Cincinnati Reds on July 14 in exchange for Paul Janish. The Reds immediately sent him to their Triple-A affiliate Louisville Bats. He was called up on July 17, and optioned back on July 18. He was called up on July 31, and optioned back on August 1. Redmond was called up again on August 18 to start the second game of a doubleheader against the Chicago Cubs. He would be the 26th player on the roster.[4] Redmond picked up the loss in the second game, pitching three and one/third innings. He gave up a leadoff home run to Brett Jackson in the 2nd inning to give the Cubs an early lead. After giving up consecutive RBI hits to Anthony Rizzo and Starlin Castro in the top of the 4th inning, he was relieved by Alfredo Simon.[5] He was optioned back to the Louisville Bats the next day, August 19.

Toronto Blue Jays[edit]

On February 13, 2013, he was claimed off waivers by the Baltimore Orioles.[6] On March 22, 2013, Redmond was claimed by the Toronto Blue Jays, and immediately optioned to the Triple-A Buffalo Bisons.[7] Redmond spent the first 41 games of the 2013 season on the disabled list with a shoulder injury. He played his first game of the season on May 19 when he started against the Charlotte Knights.[8]

Redmond was called up by the Blue Jays on May 29, 2013.[9] On May 31, 2013, he took the loss in a 17-inning game against the San Diego Padres. Redmond was optioned back to Triple-A Buffalo on June 7, 2013.[10] He was recalled on July 3 after Chien-Ming Wang was designated for assignment.[11] Redmond, starting on July 7 against the Minnesota Twins, pitched 5 innings and gave up just 1 hit, a two-run home run to Aaron Hicks. He walked 3 and struck out 4 batters, and left with a 6–2 lead, earning his first career win.[12] Redmond established career-highs in innings pitched and strikeouts with 6 and 10 respectively, in a game against the Houston Astros on July 28, 2013.[13] Redmond was optioned back to Buffalo on August 3,[14] and recalled on August 13.

On May 31, 2014, Redmond earned his first big league save, pitching 3 innings in relief of Marcus Stroman's first career start. Redmond was announced as the Blue Jays' nominee for the 2014 Roberto Clemente Award on September 17.[15]
