In 2010, Danry Vasquez was a largely unknown candidate who was signed as an international free agent and received a $1.2 million bonus for his signature. Since then, the 86 kilogram, 1.82-meter tall baseball player has shown a touch of what it takes to become a great player. However, he could not repay the trust he had in his talent, as his career seemed to have come to a standstill. Read on to learn more about his career and love life.
Who is Danry Vasquez?
Danry Vasquez was born on January 8, 1994, in Ocumare del Tuy, Miranda, Venezuela, as Danry Josué Vásquez Blanco. Details about his family, early life, and childhood are not known. It is not clear what kind of education he received, but it is obvious that as a young boy he showed enough athletic ability and baseball talent to attract the attention of some scouts from America.
Until 2010, an American professional baseball team, the Detroit Tigers, hired him as an international freelancer. Between that time and 2012, when he started the 2012 season with the West Michigan Whitecaps, a Class A Midwest League team, there was not much to hear about Vasquez. After a few poor performances, he was demoted to the Class A short-time team of the New York-Penn League, the Connecticut Tigers.
After gaining some weight and improving his game, Danry Vasquez was promoted back to the Whitecaps for the 2013 season. This season he achieved a batting average of 0.281, beating five home runs and 39 runs. This performance prompted the Major League Baseball team, the Houston Astros, to trade in for him. The Astros then traded him to the Quad Cities River Bandits in the Midwest League. He then played for the Lancaster JetHawks of the Class A-Advanced California League and the Corpus Christi Hooks of the Class AA Texas League, before he was dismissed by the Astros due to an off-field incident.
Other teams on which Danry Vasquez has played include the Independent Baseball League, the Lancaster Barnstormers of the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball, and the Piratas de Campeche of the Mexican League. After the 2018 season, he will continue to work as a freelance player.
Does He Have a Girlfriend or Wife?
Danry Vasquez has a wife, and he appears to be happily married, but the identity of his wife is unknown at this time. However, it is known that he met her after separating from his former girlfriend, whom he abused at home.
In August 2016, the baseball player was arrested during a game for the Corpus Christi Hooks of the Class AA Texas League on suspicion of assault and domestic violence. Video cameras had caught Vasquez physically assaulting his now ex-girlfriend Fabiana Perez in the stairwell of Whataburg Field Baseball Stadium, prompting stadium officials to call the police. According to the story, Vasquez had seen Perez talking to a friend at the stadium and became angry. When the two of them entered the lonely stairwell, he attacked them and left them with a broken nose and some bruises.
After the arrest, Perez decided not to press charges against her partner, although she realized this was not the first time he had abused her. The prosecution then dropped the domestic violence charges against him because he was attending anger management classes, paying an unpublished fine, and doing community service. However, this did not stop Major League Baseball from taking him on administrative leave as his parent team, the Astros released him.
Danry Vasquez and Fabiana Perez stayed together after the attack and the subsequent legal battle. In October 2016, he published a photo of himself and the woman smiling together, with the caption: “The person who is always with me for better or worse! The couple’s relationship deteriorated soon after, and he moved on to another woman whom he eventually married. It is not clear exactly when the marriage took place, but it was in November 2017 when Danry became engaged to his new wife.
In an interview with elemergente.com, Vasquez talked about his wife and said she supported him in all of this and was an unconditionally loving person about the domestic abuse incident. Then he apologized again for the incident and added that he had left everything in God’s hands.
