Surprise Reds Acquire Two Reliever From Yankees one Mexican Luis

In the last minutes it was announced that Cincinnati Reds and New York Yankees have made a player swap that sends relievers Luis Cessa and Justin Wilson to be part of Reds. This is one of the moves that was not expected to be made prior to the Season 2021 trade deadline for MLB.

On Tuesday night, July 27, it was reported that the Cincinnati Reds have acquired Luis Cessa and Justin Wilson, now former New York Yankees relievers, in a trade for a player whose name will be announced later.

The Cincinnati organization announced that to make room on the 40-man Major League Baseball roster for its new players it has designated Ashton Goudeau and Edgar Garcia for assignment.

Luis Cessa, a Mexican, was part of the New York Yankees for six seasons. In that time he managed to see action in 131 games, most as a reliever; and posted a 10-13 win-loss record as well as four saves and a 4.19 ERA.

Justin Wilson, meanwhile, had two stages in the Bronx organization. During the 2021 MLB Season he pitched in 21 games, winning one and losing another and his ERA was a high 7.50.

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 networks, 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.
