Yulieski Gourriel, long considered the best player remaining in Cuba, has defected with his younger brother, Lourdes, and the pair will be seeing major-league employment, according to multiple reports.
And the elder Gourriel likely has his set on the Yankees.
In 2015, Gourriel told Yahoo Sports he wanted to play at the “maximum level of baseball in all the world” and would cherish a chance to play with his favorite player, Alex Rodriguez.
I don’t suppose he’d take a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training?
