Miami Marlins not interested in Cuban defector Dariel Alvarez – Sun Sentinel

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.

"Jonnylons" has been a life-long Marlins fan - which isn't hard since they've only been around in since '93 and he's been around a bit longer. He founded MarlinsNation.com in order to provide a voice to Marlins fans on the internet which he started when he was up in Tallahassee at Florida State and was stranded with no Marlins games on TV up in that market.
