Former MLB pitcher Odalis Pérez dead at 44 after accident at his home in Dominican Republic

Odalis Pérez, a left-handed pitcher who invested parts of 10 MLB seasons with the Braves, Dodgers, Royals, and Nationals, has actually passed away at the age of 44 after a mishap at his house in the Dominican Republic.

Pérez’s lawyer validated the previous pitcher’s death to ESPN on Thursday. “Around 7 p.m., his brother Cristian Perez arrived at the house and found Odalis lying in the patio,” Walin Batista informed ESPN’s Enrique Rojas. “We don’t know yet the cause of his death, but everything seems to indicate Odalis slipped down a ladder. This is a tragedy.”

The Dodgers and Nationals acknowledged Pérez’s death on social networks: 

Pérez debuted with the Braves in 1998, and in his very first season with the Dodgers in 2002 he won 15 video games and made the All-Star group. Across his 10 seasons in the majors, Pérez went 73-82 with a 4.46 period in 221 starts and 31 relief looks. Pérez appeared in the postseason with the Braves in 1998 and Dodgers in 2004. He last pitched in the majors with Washington in 2008.
