Oraa, in his second season at VSL, made 19 relief appearances, putting together a 3-2 record with a 2.31 ERA allowing 38 hits, 13 runs (9 earned), one home run, 14 walks, and striking out 24 over 35 innings.
In his third season at VSL, Rios made 15 appearances (13 for starts) compiling a 4-3 record and 2.49 ERA, allowing 43 hits, 30 runs (19 earned), one home run, 26 walks, and striking out 57 over 68.2 innings.
