Cuban outfielder seeks big league deal
Cuban outfielder Guillermo Heredia has left the country and is looking for a Major League contract, according to Baseball America.
Heredia, who turns 24 at the end of January, was the center fielder for Cuba’s team at the 2013 World Baseball Classic. He has reportedly played five full seasons in Cuba, making him exempt from international bonus pools.
Heredia is regarded as a good defender with a strong arm, but he is not known for his bat. He still has to be cleared by Major League Baseball and the United States Office of Foreign Assets Control before he can sign with a big league club.
