The Capitales de Québec announced that they offered contracts to Quebec player Marc-Antoine Lebro and Canadian relief pitcher Jake Sims on Monday.
Lebreux had a dominant season in 2021 with the Saint-Eustache Bisons in Quebec’s elite baseball league, allowing his team to win the championship. He kept the RBI coming back for nearly every game in the regular season, but surpassed himself in the playoffs with 17 points in 14 games and a hit average of 0.429.
It has also developed with the University of Virginia over the past two years. The 22-year-old didn’t show a great offensive performance in the US in 2021, and had to settle for a 0.232 average.
“My style of play is really to push things through by hitting the goal and using my speed. I am fierce, so I can’t wait to see how it translates to this level of competition,” Lebro said in a statement.
Sims, 24, is a former 31st-round player with the San Diego Padres in 2018. An arm injury prevented him from joining the Frontier League Quebec side last year.
In the American high ranks, he hit 81 hitters in 47 rounds of action.
