Texas Rangers international scout Jose Luis Felomina has died in his native Curacao at age 50 following a long illness, the team said Thursday.
Felomina had worked as a Rangers scout in Curacao since 2008. Among the players he signed was Jurickson Profar, who last season started games at five positions.
Rangers GM Jon Daniels described Felomina as a dedicated scout who was outstanding at his job and was a great asset to the organization.
Curacao is an island in the Caribbean Sea north of the Venezuelan coast.
