MLB News: Orioles baseball player reveals how hard it was growing up in Cuba with food shortages

After four difficult first seasons of career in Big leaguesthe Cuban reliever Cionel Perezhad his best year in 2022 pitching with the baltimore orioles. The Havana native finished the regular season with a 1.40 ERA after 66 appearances on the mound and 57.2 innings of work.

In July of last year, Pérez held an interview with Birdland Insider in which he expressed several intimate secrets, especially from his years in Cubabefore immigrating to the United States. One of the curiosities that caught the most attention was when the 26-year-old pitcher detailed the food shortages that he had to suffer on the island.

When the interviewer asked Pérez what his favorite cereal was when he was a child, he replied that they did not have cereals in Cuba. Everything seems to indicate that after growing up, the left-handed man got used to not consuming this product since in his adult stage and with the economic solvency to acquire it, he does not eat cereals, he just likes to drink milk.
