Biographical Information[edit]

Gerardo Casadiego pitched six seasons in the Montreal Expos organization from 1999 to 2004, making three separate appearances in AA with the Harrisburg Senators, but being hit hard each time, with ERAs of 6.88 in 2002, 6.63 in 2003, and 8.27 in 2004. Obviously, he pitched better at lower levels to get these repeated looks, but it led to his being released midway through 2004. He then pitched for a couple of season in the independent leagues, with the Pensacola Pelicans of the Central Baseball League in the second half of 2004 and in 2005.

He got a second chance in organized baseball starting in 2006, in the New York Yankees system. Again, he maxed out in AA, pitching for the Trenton Thunder in 2006 and 2007. His ERA was a glowing 2.12 the first year and a still good 3.86 the second, but he never got the chance to take the final two steps to the majors. He was briefly in the Colorado Rockies system at the end of 2007, then had a good season with the Bowie BaySox in the Baltimore Orioles system in 2008, with a 3.18 ERA as a reliever. He played a couple more seasons in winter ball, then retired and a few years later rejoined the Yankees, this time as a minor league coach.

Casadiego also gained some international coaching experience in 2021/2022 with the Cardenales de Lara of the Venezuelan League
