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.
