To commemorate this momentous occasion, Nestor Cortes enlisted the company of both former and current teammates.

Nestor Cortes ties the knot

Nasty Nestor entered into an engagement in July 2022 during the All-Star Weekend. He expressed his joy on Instagram, stating, “All-Star week fulfilled two of my dreams: pitching in an All-Star game and proposing to my best friend.”

At the conclusion of the season, the southpaw informed Randy Miller of NJ Advance Media that he planned to tie the knot in both Miami and Puerto Rico, with the latter serving as the honeymoon destination. However, the festivities won’t extend for too long as Nestor Cortes is committed to putting in the necessary work for a comeback in 2024. During the recent season, he faced challenges, being ineffective with a 4.97 ERA and frequently sidelined due to injuries, resulting in a modest contribution of only 63 1/3 innings.

Nestor Cortes mentioned that the original plan was to spend a month in Puerto Rico, but he decided to reduce it to a week. He explained that this adjustment would allow him to return to Miami earlier and concentrate on his offseason training. Nestor Cortes expressed the necessity of maintaining his training regimen and mentioned that taking a whole month off without engaging in any workouts or practice wouldn’t be feasible for him.

There is no information available regarding whether or not an invitation was extended to former President Donald Trump, who is a fan of Nestor Cortes.
