In the pulsating heart of baseball, a star is on the rise. San Juan-based Rimas Sports has once again made waves in the sports world, announcing the signing of the immensely talented outfielder Everson Pereira from the New York Yankees Triple-A affiliate, the Scranton Wilkes-Barre RailRiders.
The 22-year-old Venezuelan prodigy, Pereira, stands tall among baseball's emerging talents. His credentials are noteworthy: he's ranked as the 3rd top prospect within the Yankees' organization and 80th across the entire Minor Leagues, as revealed by MLB Pipeline.
This season has witnessed Pereira's meteoric ascendancy in the world of baseball. Initially launching his campaign with the Somerset Patriots in Double-A, his exceptional performances soon secured him a promotion to Triple-A. In his journey of 77 games, Pereira has racked up impressive numbers - a slash line of .299/.363/.536 and an OPS of .899. Further sweetening his stats, he boasts 16 home runs and 62 RBIs. It's clear that since signing with the Yankees in 2017, Pereira has done nothing but justify their faith in him.
While the current season is yet to conclude, murmurs about Pereira's potential promotion to the Major League Baseball by its end are already circulating in baseball corridors.
Jonathan Miranda, the esteemed President of Rimas Sports, warmly welcomed Pereira, stating, "We are honored that he has chosen our agency to further his career, and we have no doubt that together we will accomplish great things. Our unwavering dedication to discovering and cultivating exceptional talent continues as we advocate for greater Latino representation in the sports arena."
For those unfamiliar with Rimas Sports, it serves as the abode for several baseball luminaries and top-tier prospects. Among its celebrated clientele are Francisco Álvarez (New York Mets), Wilmer Flores (San Francisco Giants), Ezequiel Tovar (Colorado Rockies), Santiago Espinal (Toronto Blue Jays), Jordan Díaz (Oakland Athletics), Ronny Mauricio (New York Mets), Marco Luciano (San Francisco Giants), and Diego Cartaya (LA Dodgers). This sports titan, birthed this year, is the brainchild of global recording artist Bad Bunny, in partnership with stalwarts Noah Assad and Jonathan Miranda.
In clearing any potential clouds of confusion, it's vital to note that Rimas Sports operates independently and is neither affiliated nor a segment of Rimas Entertainment.
As the baseball season unfurls its chapters, all eyes will be on Everson Pereira, with many waiting to see how this promising chapter of his journey with Rimas Sports unfolds.
