Former Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Miguel Alfredo González has died, the Major League Baseball club has confirmed.

Multiple outlets out of Cuba reported that the 34-year-old González was killed in a car accident.

In 2013, González, a native of Cuba, defected from the country and eventually signed a three-year deal with the Phillies in August of that same year.

He made six appearances out of the Philadelphia bullpen in 2014 — registering a 6.75 ERA.

González battled arm injuries throughout his time with the Phillies. He pitched in the minors before his release in 2016.
