Puerto Rican wide receiver Roberto “Bebo” Pérez reached a one-year deal with the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Pérez had held a series of conversations early Tuesday with the ninth to which the star Roberto Clemente belonged, according to ESPN writer Jeff Passan.

The amount of the agreement is $ 5 million.

Pérez also caught the attention of the Baltimore Orioles.

In the morning, shortstop Javier Báez reached an agreement with the Detroit Tigers for six years and $ 140 million. The signing has not materialized pending certain rigorous medical examinations of the now former New York Mets shortstop.

Perez entered free agency after Cleveland decided not to exercise his $ 7 million option on the Puerto Rican wide receiver to make room for third baseman Jose Ramirez.

‘Bebo’ had been with Cleveland for eight years, a franchise that decided this month to change its name from Indians to Guardines.

Pérez was the winner of the Golden Glove in the 2019 and 2020 seasons.

The Mayaguez receiver played only 44 games with the Guardians in 2021, after being affected by a fracture in his right ring finger.
