The New York Mets second baseman has been out of action since November 17 due to back discomfort.
The Eastern Stars receive a weight reinforcement in the face of the last games of the regular season in the figure of Robinson Canó.
According to what was announced by the general manager, Felix Peguero, the Major League Baseball player would be in the lineup this Tuesday night after he had to pause his performance due to a stiff back.
Canó has seen action in six games this season, hitting seven hits in 24 at-bats with five RBIs and two runs scored. The Petromacorisano is hitting .292 with an OBP of .308 on a traded walk and four strikeouts.
“Robinson called me and told me that he is ready to play again from this Tuesday,” said Peguero, through a press release from the green team.
The Eastern Stars will welcome Canó with open arms as they go through a critical moment of the season by losing 7 of the last 10 games, which has led them to fall from first place, which they have occupied much of the season.
Currently those of San Pedro have a record of 19 victories and 17 defeats, tied with Águilas Cibaeñas and Tigres del Licey, but only one match behind the Gigantes del Cibao who are at the top of the table.
Canó informed the Dominican newspaper El Día last Wednesday that he needed authorization from the Mets to return to the game, although this would contradict the current lockout experienced by the MLB.
The Eastern Stars will meet the Águilas Cibaeñas this Tuesday and Wednesday, exchanging venues, and close the regular season against Leones del Escogido and Toros del Este, the latter the only team eliminated in the postseason race to date.
