Dominican baseball player Johan Rojas and his wife-to-be Viarmin Gomez are another couple goals in the MLB.
The year 2023 brought a series of bliss to the Phillies outfielder- first with his engagement to his longtime girlfriend, Viarmin, in May, and then his MLB debut in July.
Ever since the up-and-coming MLB figure confirmed that he & his girlfriend are now fiancees, fans are going crazy to know the details of their relationship. Moreover, there is increasing scrutiny about Rojas’ future wife.
Born on August 14, 2000, Johan, 23, took a voyage from Dominic Republic to the United States at 18, after signing with the Philadelphia Phillies as an international free agent.
He debuted with the Dominican Summer League Phillies in 2018 and batted 0.321 with two home runs, four triples, 12 doubles & 31 RBI.
From then on, he’s been on a progressive move from single-A affiliate, Clearwater, to High-A affiliate, Jersey Shore, and then to Double-A affiliate team, Reading Fightin Phils.
The 2023 season got him promoted to the MLB team, Philadelphia Phillies, replacing injured Cristian Pache on the 26-man roster. Since his MLB debut on July 15, Rojas has not looked back.
On August 16, Johan scored his first home run against the Twins, and later, on September 26, 2023, he hit a walk-off single that clinched the Phillies to the playoffs.
