NEW YORK -- Former All-Star right-hander Jose Lima died Sunday morning at his home in Los Angeles at the age of 37.

 

The cause of death was ruled a heart attack, according to his wife, Dorca Astacio.

 

"Jose was complaining while sleeping and I just thought he was having a nightmare," Astacio told ESPNdeportes.com. "I called the paramedics, but they couldn't help him."

 

Lima was 89-102 in 13 seasons with the Detroit Tigers, Houston Astros, Kansas City Royals, Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Mets.

 

He was selected to the All-Star Game with Houston in 1999, when he won a career-high 21 games. He didn't return to the major leagues after being released by the Mets in 2006, when he posted a 0-4 record.

 

Last winter, Lima played for the Aguilas Cibaenas in the Dominican Republic and had announced plans to do the same in the upcoming season.

 

Enrique Rojas is a reporter and columnist for ESPNdeportes.com and ESPN.com.

 

He was 37... Sad...

 

RIP Lima Time
