Miami Marlins not interested in Cuban defector Dariel Alvarez – Sun Sentinel
December 29, 2012 in Offseason
The Miami Marlins last offseason made a strong, yet unsuccessful run at touted Cuban defector Yoenis Cespedes. Don’t look for them to mount a similar pursuit for Dariel Alvarez, who earlier this month was declared a free agent.
Alvarez, 24, appears primed to be the next product of the island nation to cash in. A right-handed hitting outfielder, Alvarez defected last summer and established residency in Mexico, where he currently is playing for the Tuxpan Tigers in the Vera Cruz winter league.
