Who is the Colombian Reiver Sanmartin, who came from the Yankees to the Reds?

The Colombian pitcher, Reiver Sanmartin, had a dream debut in the MLB on Monday with the Cincinnati Reds by dominating the Pittsburgh Pirates in a 5.2-inning performance in which he allowed only one run, allowed five hits and struck out five opponents.

The southpaw, who needed 93 pitches of which 60 were strikes, has a 1.59 ERA in the 2021 season of the Big leagues, after the victory of his team against the Buccaneers by 13-1.

Reiver José Sanmartín was born in the town of María La Baja, near Cartagena, on April 15, 1996. He is part of a family dedicated to carpentry and a baseball fan. However, before making the leap to professional, the Reds player played soccer, playing as a left back, according to an interview published in El Espectador.
