Ismael enters his second season with the Ducks and seventh in professional baseball. The right-handed pitcher joined the Ducks in August of 2019 and went on to pitch in 15 games during the regular season. He struck out 20 batters over 19 innings while walking nine, and he held opponents to a .250 batting average. The 25-year-old went on to pitch two playoff games for the Ducks as well, tossing two scoreless innings of relief and striking out two batters while yielding just one hit and one walk.
Prior to signing with Long Island, the Dominican Republic native posted a 3-1 record with a 3.86 ERA in eight games with the New Jersey Jackals of the Can-Am League. He also spent time over each of the first six seasons of his professional career in the Philadelphia Phillies organization. In 117 games (10 starts) during that span, he went 17-15 with a 3.62 ERA, 11 saves and 212 strikeouts to 86 walks over 204 innings. Ismael was originally signed by the Phillies as an amateur free agent in 2014.
