MLB Discovery Rookie reliever who fights his way with the

Since making his major league debut on July 29, the reliever Austin Warren of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, has done nothing but impress the manager Joe Maddon.

The 25-year-old Warren has a 3.12 ERA and a 0.92 WHIP in just 8 2/3 innings despite pitching against contending teams like the Oakland Athletics, LA Dodgers and Toronto Blue Jays:

His worst outing was against the Blue Jays on Tuesday, August 10, when he allowed two runs and three hits in an inning in Game 1 of a doubleheader at Angels Stadium.

Foreman Maddon said that what Warren has shown him up to this point is proof enough that the rookie is ready for high-leverage positions:

As long as it is vital, it will be there. Usually he will almost always pitch with the game tied or ahead. From now on, you don’t want to throw a guy like that when you’re losing. You want to put it against the top of the lineup [de la oposición] “.

I am fond of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and in general all of Mexican baseball. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover major events such as the Caribbean Series, LMB All Star, LMP (uninterrupted since 2009), signings of important players. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, albeit as a fan. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but I carry baseball in my veins. Bachelor of Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS) , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I came to El Debate as a journalist reporter and it was almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to the radio providing my services in Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and within days, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. That is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
