The teams of the Venezuelan Professional Baseball League are working at full speed (LVBP) for the 2022-2023 season, which will start next October. This Wednesday Tigres de Aragua surprised by announcing its first import.
The Bengali ninth will play its fourth season under the OFAC sanction, which does not allow it to add technicians or players associated with the MLB system. And this allows him - like Magallanes - to have seven imports, two more than the rest of his rivals.
Well, the first is already defined and it is Adam Hofacket.
In the first report of the Tigres de Aragua, they specify that Hofacket, 28, currently lives on the independent circuit of the Frontier League with the Tri-City ValleyCats team.

In said circuit, the right-hander has a record of 6-3 and an ERA of 4.15 with 32 strikeouts. He has 21 1.108/XNUMX innings of work and a WHIP of XNUMX.
The Tigres de Aragua expect Hofacket to perform in the final innings. The management is committed to reinforcing the pitching that has generally been the circuit's Achilles heel in recent seasons.
