The information was released by the Atlanta Braves, who subjected the Venezuelan to an MRI that revealed the complete tear. That, after having abandoned the match that the Atlanta Braves won 8-1 over the Pittsburgh Pirates this Sunday afternoon after suffering the mishap on the way to second and third base.

His surgery will be in the coming days on a date yet to be determined and adds to a long list of injuries that “El de La Sabana” has suffered in the most recent stretch of his career and that includes a tear in the cruciate ligament of his right knee in 2021.

Thus, the Guaireño finishes the campaign in 49 games in which he batted for an average of .250 (192-48) with eight doubles, a triple, four home runs, 15 RBIs, 38 runs scored and an OPS of .716 in 222 visits to the plate.
