MLB: Orioles appoints expert Dominican pitcher for assignment ‘nasty’ changes

On the afternoon of this Friday, August 20, it was announced that Baltimore Orioles have decided to designate for assignment the Dominican César Valdez. The veteran pitcher is characterized by throwing dangerous changes that make his opponents look bad. Valdez was in his second stage as a player for the MLB.

Baltimore Orioles reported this day that as part of recent roster moves, they have designated pitcher Cesar Valdez for assignment, as well as taking Chris Ellis off Tampa Bay Rays waivers.

Valdez was Orioles’ trusted closer for several days during the 2021 MLB Season, seeing action in 38 games of which 12 were save opportunities and got eight of these.

The Dominican veteran is characterized by having a quality changeup, being his most ‘lethal’ weapon against batters and although he was used as a reliever and closer, he also serves as a starter.

César Valdez was in his second stage as a MLB player, as the Baltimore Orioles signed him in 2020 after having had great performances with Leones de Yucatán in the Mexican Baseball League (LMB) and Tigres del Licey in LIDOM.

I joined ‘Al Bat’ in September 2020, starting a new work stage in which I always seek to give my best version, in addition to leaving a significant mark on the passage of women in an industry that is managed mainly by men. Degree in Communication Sciences and Techniques from the Inter-American University for Development (UNID), I am a specialist in sports journalism, writing and editing texts, I have three years of experience covering sports, especially baseball from the Mexican Baseball League (LMB ), Liga Mexicana del Pacífico (LMP) and MLB. I was an intern at the LMB Leones de Yucatán Baseball Club, with whom I attended the 2019 Rey Series. I have done work for social networks such as the coverage of the 2019-2020 edition of the LMP Final for ‘Con Las Bases Llenas’. I am constantly updated on social media, SEO, Google positioning, writing, digital journalism, as well as the place of women in the sports industry. Originally from Mérida, Yucatán, my first approach to baseball was in a game of Lions of Yucatán, in the ‘Kukulcán Álamo’ Park, in 2015; and that changed my life completely. The ‘Melenudos’ are the team of my loves and the greatest passion I have in this sport. Although I dedicate myself to baseball most of the time, my sport, in the beginning, was (and still is) soccer. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich won my heart and fans from ‘minute one’ and I am fortunate to have already seen them play live. Clearly, I am a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and Manuel Neuer.
