This week I’ve focused on the first five Brazilian ballplayers to make it to the Major Leagues. So its only fitting we analyze their current stats to see how they’re doing this year:
|Player||Age||Current Team||Position||Batting Avg. or ERA||RBI||HR|
|Yan Gomes||31||Washington Nationals||C||.244||11||2|
|Andre Rienzo||30||Acereros de Monclova||P||4.12||—||—|
|Paulo Orlando||33||Oklahoma City Dodgers||OF||.211||7||2|
|Thyago Vieira||25||Charlotte Knights||P||4.50*||—||—|
|Luiz Gohara||22||Gwinnett Stripers||P||N/A**||N/A||N/A|
* In one game with the Chicago White Sox, Vieira allowed 1 hit and no runs over two innings, earning the win.
** Gohara is currently on the Injured List and has not played yet this year.
