Luis Valbuena, Jose Castillo Dead After Tragic Car Accident

A former Angels infielder and his winter league teammate, also a former MLB player, was killed in a auto accident Thursday night in Venezuela.

The vehicle the ex-MLB players were traveling in was destroyed in the wreck - and before authorities arrived, the Toyota had been looted and the players robbed, according to the Venezuelan regional newspaper El Impulso. He hit.199 with a.253 on-base percentage, a.335 slugging percentage, nine homers and 33 RBIs in 96 games for Los Angeles this year.

"We lost our players Luis Valbuena and José Castillo in a traffic accident", the Venezuelan club tweeted. He also played for the Mariners, Indians, Cubs and Astros during an 11-year career that began in 2008. "Our thoughts and prayers are with their loved ones during this time of grief". "He was a productive player on the field and played a key role in the Astros run to the postseason in 2015", the statement reads.

Castillo played five seasons with Pittsburgh, San Francisco and Houston. His best year came in 2016 when he batted.260 and slugged.459 while hitting 13 home runs and collecting 40 RBI for the Houston Astros.

Rivero, 30, had a brief major league stint with the Boston Red Sox in 2014.

He was in the minor leagues in the United States as recently as 2017, playing for the Arizona Diamondbacks' Triple-A Reno affiliate.
