The outfielder quebec Jonathan Lacroix with Capitals
The Capitals of Quebec have added another local flavor to their roster for the upcoming season Thursday, confirming the signing of right fielder Jonathan Lacroix. He joined David Glaude, another player quebec, having recently been acquired by the formation of the League of the Frontier.
Several months ago the manager Patrick Scalabrini ogled the batter left-handed 22-year-old native of Montreal. Released by the organization of the Houston Astros last summer, Lacroix had preferred to keep away from professional baseball to return to the fun of the game.
“I had received calls on my return to Quebec, this summer, but I don’t attempting to play pro. I went to play with my friends in the junior baseball elite and I had a lot of fun”, told the one that is aligned with the Orioles from Montreal, who lost in the final of the LBJEQ against the Diamonds of Quebec.
Lacroix was a choice of 12th round of the Astros in 2017 at its output ranks college, where he had experienced a lot of success with the college to Seminole State in Oklahoma, the same that has already attended the current manager of the Capitals. He played two seasons in the subsidiaries of the Astros, including maintaining a cumulative grade point average of .240 (118 hits in 552 presences) with six circuits, 23 doubles, 57 rbi and nine stolen bases. He hit 14 hits to more than one goal on 27 (average ,500) in the recent series of the LBJEQ.
“Jonathan is a player that I’m watching since a few years, I tried to bring it with us this summer, but it came out of a season emotionally with the Astros and had no desire to go to help his friends to win a championship in the junior. I am very happy that he signed with us, I believe, in a position to be able to play all day, which could allow him to blossom. It completely destroyed the conference to Seminole in its final year [17 circuits, 68 rbi’s, average ,440 in 2017] and shown beautiful things in the affiliate,” explained Scalabrini.
Lacroix described himself as a player capable of doing well in several aspects of the game.
“I don’t have a exceptional tool, I consider myself more as a player full. I’m not wrong just on the ground. My goal is to become a player and the key to the Capitals”, stated the main person who trains currently in the company of Abraham Toro, the Quebec who have reached the majors with the Astros this season. They attended the same high school and even college in the United States, without, however, stay together at Seminole State.
It comes with the key to live a great adventure team.
“Being in the baseball quebec, it is sure that I have heard often of the Capitals. It is a winning team, there are the atmosphere at the Stadium [Canac] and it really seems fun to play in Quebec city. I know a little about Patrick, he has already coached in an activity. I’m going to play with the Capitals to win and have fun as a team. If I had an offer to return to baseball affiliate, I would accept it, probably, but I wouldn’t mind if I do not receive no more.”
Lacroix slips under a category that is not part of the 10 rookies and 10 players of experience (including four veterans of 29 years and more) as the teams in the League Frontier must align. The Capitals will elaborate soon on the records of Yordan Manduley, Jesse Hodges, David Salgueiro and Brandon Fischer, of the players that the manager would like to review for the next season. It has also already invited a few recruits to the next training camp.
