 Biographical Information
Pitcher Silvio Censale was drafted in the 4th round of the 1990 Amateur Draft by the Minnesota Twins but did not sign. He played for Puerto Rico in the 1992 Olympics. The following year, he was selected by the Philadelphia Phillies in the tenth round of the amateur draft. He began his career with the Batavia Clippers and went 5-2 with a 2.08 ERA, striking out 54 in 52 innings. After sitting out '94, Censale went 10-6 with a 3.15 ERA for the 1995 Piedmont Phillies, striking out 123 in 120 innings. In '96, Silvio was 8-9, 3.92 for the Clearwater Phillies. Moving to AA in 1997, the 26-year-old southpaw went 9-4 with a 4.36 ERA for the Reading Phillies. He had a 1.93 ERA for '98 Reading in just 4 games, presumably due to injury. In 1999, Censale struggled to a 1-6, 11.77 finish, allowing 122 walks and hits in 52 innings. In Organized Baseball, he went 33-27.
Let go by Philadelphia, the left-hander caught on with the independent Camden Riversharks but was just 1-4 with a 8.38 ERA. The Newark Bears then took a flier and he had a 6.00 ERA in six outings there. In 2002, he went 1-0 with a 8.25 ERA for the Atlantic City Surf and was 1-1, 4.63 for the Allentown Ambassadors.
