The General Manager of LíderIt is, Juan Colmenarez commented to the summer league press department that the decision is not about the poor performance of the starter, but to reinforce the revelation.
"We are super grateful to Robert Zárate for his work as a starter, in the bullpen, but basically it's purely baseball stuff," said the manager.
The ninth from Arague will receive the experienced player with a 1-0 record with a 6.75 ERA in six appearances this season.
“This change is part of the things that the organization has been doing in order to adjust what we are observing. We were looking for a relief arm like Sumoza's,” she expressed.
Sumoza is a 22-year-old right-hander. This season he has posted three appearances with a 4.50 ERA in 2.0 innings with one strikeout.
Samanes visits the Mariners this Thursday at 6:00 PM at the José Bernardo Pérez stadium. While Senators will collide before LíderIt is from Miranda in the José Pérez Colmenares park in Maracay.
