Their manager Rey Vicente ANGLADA FERRER is also responsible for the successful national squad. HERNANDEZ’ former teammates Yadel MARTI and Alex MAYETA impressed at the Baseball World Cup in Taiwan.
JIMENEZ comes from Hercules L’Hospitalet. The reliever appeared in ten games with a 1-2 record. He had an ERA of 6.85 with 13 strikeouts in 22.1 innings pitched. He gave up 32 walks. His former team had to withdraw for the upcoming season due to new rules, requiring a grass surface in all ballparks of the Spanish Baseball League.
