In his last presentation, the starter for Leones del Caracas, Carlos Hernández reached four innings of work from the mound. In this performance against the Tigres de Aragua, the right-hander left the rival hit blank. In that start, the Venezuelan surpassed the innings mark he had registered in his previous appearances.
However, this caused the Kansas City Royals to set their eyes on him and send him a new term.. Caracas may only use the pitcher for a maximum of 20 pitches per inning. The cap would be two innings per outing. This was reported by journalist Carlos Valmore via Twitter.

In all, the shotgunner could only throw a total of 40 pitches. That is, two innings of work in case he doesn’t get into trouble. The team also claimed that if he throws more than 20 pitches in a single inning, should be withdrawn from the commitment. However, manager José Alguacil and the long-haired management are working to negotiate this restriction. For now, this will be the limit with which the residents of the capital will have to work until further notice.
