Vicente’s statements arise from the rumor that ran in different media in the country about the participation of a slugger. The version that circulated was that the outfielder Juan Soto would play next Monday with the Tigres del Licey, at the start of the Round Robin.

Audo said that Soto has been practicing, but that Licey is waiting for the yes from San Diego and what they want from the Dominican player.
Audo was pleased with this possibility, at a time when Licey is preparing for the long semifinal of 18 games.
“San Diego is preparing a blunderbuss, we know that, and from there they will make their decision. We will report when that happens, but right now we don’t know when Soto could be playing.”
