Former big leaguer Luis Valbuena (33) and Jose Castillo (37) died on Thursday in a car accident in Venezuela. 

 

Unfortunately, there seems to be 1-3 such instances every offseason in the Dominican and Venezuela. It was two years ago that former Twins prospect Yorman Landa passed away. The same offseason Royals starter Yordano Ventura died as well.

Thank you Luis and José. You worked hard and brought us baseball to watch. It's a good legacy to leave.

Nothing is impossible for the one who doesn't have to do the work.

Horrible to hear that the circumstances around the death involved murder. Horribly tragic.
