Miscellaneous

  • DeSalvo is a voracious reader, who in February 2007 was working on a selection of five books at once.[4]

In a heroic MLB debut, DeSolvo allowed 1 run on 3 hits in 7 innings of work. Although his performance was professional, he did not recieve the win since bullpen relievers Kyle Farnsworth and Mariano Rivera blew the lead. Though while Farnsworth was pitching, a questionable call came when Willie Bloomquist of the Mariners stole second and the umpire called him safe while replays clearly showed him out by at least a foot.
