With the Boston Red Sox in a good moment that has been fully involving them in the fight for tickets to the 2022 postseason round in the American League, the Massachusetts state squad seeks to further strengthen the squad for what is to come before the pause forced by the All-Star Game in Los Angeles, to be played on July 19.
On Tuesday night, after the match against the Toronto Blue Jays at the Rogers Center, they incorporated Venezuelans Yolmer Sánchez and Silvino Bracho, who once again receive Boston's confidence.
Once promoted to the first team and joining the roster in Canadian territory, the 2019 Gold Glove winner with the Chicago White Sox told Hispanic Sports Media his joy at this new opportunity.

"We have a squad that can hurt the rival and that's what matters to us now, that we can be at the end of the season in the fight to qualify for the playoffs," he said.
Sánchez was playing with the affiliate of the "redheads" in AAA, the Worcester Red Sox, where he averaged a .253 average with eight home runs and 29 charters in 217 official shifts.
For his part, Bracho (who was also a teammate of Sánchez in Worcester) will take the place of pitcher Connor Seabold, who immediately went down to AAA. In the Minors, the other reliever of the Rattlesnakes posted a record of 0-3, 3.16 ERA, 36 strikeouts and four walks in 31.1 innings.
