Martín Pérez joins the Texas Rangers for a millionaire sum

The Venezuelan baseball player joined the Texas Rangers after accepting an offer of 19.65 million dollars

Venezuelan Martín Pérez accepted the $19.65 million qualifying offer from the Texas Rangers. The Creole pitcher recorded, perhaps, the best season of his career in the Major Leagues (MLB).

The left-handed starter went 12-8 with a 2.89 ERA after pitching 196 1/3 innings in 32 starts. In addition, he struck out 169 batters and managed a complete game by way of shutout.

The native of Guanare, Portuguesa state, won the pitcher of the month award for May and participated in the 2022 All-Star Game, which was played at Dodgers Stadium.

Thanks to his extraordinary performance in 2022, Martín Pérez could be one of the main pitchers for Venezuela in the next World Baseball Classic (WBC), scheduled for March 2023.
