New Cuban Defectors


Recommended Posts

I find it interesting that there are a handful of new Cuban defectors that have escaped and are trying to establish residency: http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2013/11/cuban-shortstop-arruebarruena-defects.html . Raicel Iglesias, a RHP was also just reported as a defector.


The one that most interests me I think is Erisbel Arruebarruena who is reportedly a defensive "magician" at SS. If he became available it would make moving Aybar more palatable in my mind.

I was reading this earlier and was thinking the same thing. How is his bat though?



"Earlier this year, Baseball America ranked Arruebarruena the No. 10 World Baseball Classic prospect not signed with an MLB team.  Badler writes that the shortstop is a below-average runner but he makes up for it with a quick first step and solid instincts that give him good range.  Scouts have called Arruebarruena a magician in the field, but he'll have to step things up at the plate."
