Blanco was born in La Guaira, Venezuela, and started his career with the Braves in 2014, making his MLB debut in 2018, winning the Rookie of the Year title. He made history last year as the first player to reach 40/70 (home runs / stolen bases) in a season. It earned the 4x MLB All-Star the NL MVP title, which he won unanimously.

Fellow Venezuelan legend Miguel Cabrera said the player, “has a great chance of becoming the best Venezuelan-born baseball player ever.”

He will join a roster of over 70 Latin players. Rimas Sports has also signed some up-and-coming talent in the MLB including the Mets’ Francisco Alvarez and Ronny Mauricio, Giants’ first baseman Wilmer Flores, Eddie Rosario, the leftfielder of the Washington Nationals, Rockies shortstop Ezequiel Tovar, the Reds’ Santiago Espinal, and top Dodgers prospect Diego Cartaya.
