Managua - Cuban starting pitcher Lazaro Blanco is in Nicaragua to join the Leones de Leon baseball team of the Professional Baseball League (LBPN).
The team's manager, Sandor Guido, confirmed to Prensa Latina over the telephone that the 34-year-old Cuban pitcher had arrived in Nicaragua on Tuesday night.
Guido said that Lazaro Blanco will have his first training with the staff in the afternoon and should make his first start on Saturday or Monday, depending on how he feels physically after his trip.
The Leones de Leon team, currently the LBPN's champion, did not start well and is the last team in the standings with just one win (last Friday on the opening day) and three losses in a row.
Lazaro Blanco will precisely become a luxury inclusion for a pitching rotation that has been poor during the first games.
