The latest in what will be a continuing effort to introduce you to many in the players, managers and coaches up and down the Red Sox organization comes to us from Portland. Mike Antonellis is the radio play by play voice of the Sea Dogs. I had the pleasure of meeting Mike last month in Fort Myers, and thanks to him we have this feature on right-handed pitcher Robert Coello.
Coello was originally drafted by the Reds as a catcher in 2004. He missed all of 2005 due to injury. The Reds let him go and the Angels picked him up and converted him into a pitcher. In 2008 he pitched with Edmonton in the independent Golden Baseball League. Boston signed him after the 2008 season and he spent most of 2009 with high A Salem in the Carolina League.
