Former MLB shortstop Julio Lugo — who played in the Big Leagues for 12 years — reportedly died on Monday.
He was just 45 years old.
ESPN’s Enrique Rosas said Lugo’s family confirmed the death, explaining they believe the ex-baseball player suffered a heart attack.
No further details surrounding the death have been given.
Lugo — who was set to celebrate his 46th birthday on Tuesday — was drafted by the Houston Astros in 1994 and eventually played in the MLB from 2000-2011.
The infielder played for seven teams — the Astros, Rays, Dodgers, Red Sox, Cardinals, Orioles and Braves — but he was most known for his time in Boston.
After signing a four-year, $36 million contract with the Sox in 2006 — he went on to help the team win the 2007 World Series.
Lugo logged 1,279 hits in his career … and finished with 198 steals and a batting average of .269.
The death is the second tragic one in the MLB in less than two weeks … former Mets reliever Pedro Feliciano also passed away at age 45 just 8 days ago.
