Ely arrived in Argentina with very good references after his time in Panama baseball. It was our first season and we had many expectations with what we would see in it. And not disappointed, Ely finished as the pitcher of the year and also MVP. Despite the increase in the level in the league in the second year, Ely kept his pace and although he was not the best pitcher of the tournament, he managed to be among the best in effectiveness and strikeouts. A long-range pitcher who can throw 6-7 innings per game.
