When the sixth week of games is about to start in the Venezuelan Professional Baseball League (LVBP), The Navegantes del Magallanes arrive with an inescapable reality: they need to improve their pitching staff, which has the sixth poorest ERA, 4.78.
In this sense, the shipping high command takes action on the matter and specifies the approach of the shipwright Jalen Miller, who in so facto enters the roster at the disposal of the helmsman Yadier Molina.
Former player of the gardens, this right-hander since 2019 assumes the role from the mound, specifies the Blue Press Department, where they add that their new member was born in Italy 29 years ago.
His career as a professional has passed between the Class A branches of the Baltimore Orioles (6.75 ERA), while this year he has worked in the American Association and the Atlantic League. His numbers added in those two circuits: 4.84 earned run average, 6-4 record, 85 strikeouts and 51 walks in 74.1 stretches spread over 20 games, 8 as a starter.
For Miller, the flavor and heat of Caribbean baseball is familiar ground, in the 2021 Caribbean Series he was part of the Colombian representation.
Together with him, the Magallaneros also announce the additions to the roster of ranger Romer Cuadrado, as well as shotgunner Enderson Franco; the three occupy the positions of infielder Renato Núñez and pitchers Alvin Herrera and Roniel Raudes.
