Leones and Magallanes agreed to a triple change in which Felipe Rivero is also involved

Leones del Caracas announced the acquisition of pitcher Erick Leal for the 2024-205 season of the Venezuelan Professional Baseball League (LVBP) with the aim of improving his pitching. 

The announcement was made by the long-haired team through his account on the social network 

For its part, the filibuster team will receive the players Felipe Rivero, Oswald Peraza and Leonel Sequera from the capital cave

Leal had established himself as one of the most outstanding figures in Magallanes pitching in his six seasons within the LVBP, leaving a record of 18-7 and an ERA of 3.57 with 152 strikeouts. 

During the 2020-21 season he also won the Venezuelan Baseball Pitcher of the Year award after going 5-1 with an ERA of 1.31 in 34.1 innings pitched. 

For his part, Víctor Bericoto debuted last season and left a batting average of .268 with 19 hits, six doubles, two home runs, seven RBIs and 13 runs scored. 

The last one to arrive to the long-haired team is pitcher José Marcos Torres, who was already part of Caracas and has a 9-12 record in 99.2 innings pitched with nine games saved. 

Magellan does not lose power

Those from Valencia have as their main acquisition the New York Yankees infielder, Oswald Peraza, who last season had an average of .216 with 16 hits, four doubles, a home run and six RBIs. 

The second piece is the pitcher Felipe Rivero, who seeks to return to the diamonds after overcoming his legal issues in the United States for being found guilty of sexual assault. 

The last time he participated in the Venezuelan Professional Baseball League was in the 2013-14 season, when he pitched in five games in which he left a 0-0 record and with an ERA of 7.94.

Leonel Sequera is an 18-year-old prospect who currently plays in the minor leagues of the St. Louis Cardinals and has an ERA of 2.57 in two games pitched with five strikeouts.
