[RiverDogs Preview] RiverDogs Look to Bounce Back Tonight Against Legends

After falling to the Lexington Legends last night in the season opener the Charleston RiverDogs look to bounce back tonight behind right-handed Freicer Perez.

Starting Lineup:

  1. Hoy Jun Park – SS
  2. Oswaldo Cabrera – 3B
  3. Blake Rutherford – RF
  4. Leonardo Molina – LF
  5. Estevan Florial – CF
  6. Isiah Gilliam – 1B
  7. Angel Aguilar – 2B
  8. Carlos Vidal – DH
  9. Eduardo Navas – C
  10. Freicer Perez – RHP


  • Right-handed pitcher Freicer Perez will make his 2017 season debut this season in his first start of the year for the RiverDogs.  Perez can dial up the heat, hitting as high as 99 miles per hour on the radar gun.  Last season he was 2-4 with a 4.47 ERA for the Staten Island Yankees and struck out 49 batters in 52 1/3 innings but also walked 25 batters.
  • Blake Rutherford looks to continue his good start to the season after reaching base three times in the opening contest.
  • Angel Aguilar, who has shown defensive versatility in his career, looks to show that he can turn this around at the plate.
  • Eduardo Navas threw out 41% of runners attempting to steal on him last season, he looks to continue that progress.
