Luis Arráez is part of the Navegantes del Magallanes squad, in the Venezuelan Professional Baseball League, but this year he comes to Miami to participate in the new Major League baseball season, joining the lineup of the Miami Marlins, a team who seeks to improve his offense, so the presence of the Creole will be essential at the top of the lineup.
During 2022, Arráez grew with the Minnesota Twins and finished the season with a .316 average, which made him the sixth Venezuelan to win a batting crown in the Major Leagues, after Andrés Galarraga, Magglio Ordóñez, Carlos González, Miguel Cabrera and José Altuve.
Now he must adapt to his new team, since his arrival in the Eastern Division of the American League of Professional Baseball Clubs will provide manager Skip Schumaker with more offense.
In the middle of the press conference at LoanDepot Park, he stated, “I’m happy to be here in Miami and as long as I’m healthy, like Alcántara and the rest of the guys, we’ll be a team that will give us headaches in the division. I’m ready to leave it all on the field.”
