The Lexington Legends have added Iván De Jesús Jr. to their roster. De Jesús Jr. was drafted in the 2nd round by the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2005. He had his Major League Baseball debut with the Dodgers in 2011 and went on to also play for the Boston Red Sox and Cincinnati Reds.
De Jesús Jr. will join former Reds teammate, Brandon Phillips, on the Legends roster. He is the 7th MLB veteran to play for the Lexington Legends this season joining Brandon Phillips, Ben Revere, Robbie Ross, Henry Owens, Jordan Pacheco, and Mike Hauschild.
De Jesús Jr.’s father, Iván De Jesús, was the Lexington Legends Manager in 2004 and 2012 while affiliated with the Houston Astros. “This is a blast having Brandon play for his brother P.J., and now we have Iván playing for the organization where his Father was a Manager, as well”, said Lexington Legends President & CEO, Andy Shea.
