The Cubans

There are new talents in Cuban Major League Baseball. Yordan Alvarez of the Houston Astros is one of them, and he wanted to remember him with his performance yesterday in the easy victory over Boston.

Alvarez, 24, homered, doubled and hit and was the inspiration for Houston to take command of the series 3-2.

This player, who can act in the outfield, first and be designated, won the Rookie of the Year award in 2019 with a .313 average, 27 home runs and 78 RBIs. This year it had. 277-33-104, meaning he crossed from 30 homers and 100 RBIs.

He joins Tampa’s Randy Arozarena, also 24, who exploded in last year’s playoffs with an all-time record 11 home runs.

Other Cuban names on the current scene are José Abreu, Yoan Moncada, Yasmani Grandall and Luis Robert, all with the Chicago White Sox. There are the Gurriel brothers, Yulieski and Lourdes Jr., the first with Houston (batting leader this year), the second with Toronto.

In addition, Jorge Soler with Atlanta, Aroldis Chapman with the Yankees and others of lesser value or name such as infielders Yandy Díaz, José Iglesias, infielders, outfielder Guillermo Heredia and reliever Raicel Iglesias, of Los Angelinos.

These Cubans have taken the spaces left by Yoenis Cespedes and Yasiel Puig, who were good projects, but they both stayed behind.

EASY: Houston, on the other hand, had their third win against Boston and they did it easily. Of course, the main hero was Framber Valdez, a left-handed Dominican pitcher, who threw 8 innings of 5 hits, one base, 5 strikeouts. The only damage was Rafael Devers’ home run in the 7th.

Houston is going home to seek a victory for its possible move to the world series. He will have two chances with the series 3-2. Will Boston return?

THE FOGOSO: About Randy Arozarena I would say that he is still in development. He faced his first schedule of 162 games, which means that he must learn many things ahead of him since he is only 24 years old. He had 20 home runs, 69 RBIs and 20 steals, but he struck out 170 times.

FAST: Jose Siri, the fast Dominican player from Houston, had his second postseason appearance yesterday, hitting one hit and driving in two. When you gain confidence, you could show everything you have. In the regular, after being promoted last month, he ran out 46 at-bats, hit 4 home runs and had some impact. Will he play here full time with the Giants?
FROM LIDOM: We are 6 days from the start of the local ball and the teams continue doing their activities. Yesterday he played at the Licey and naturally all the directors say that “they will be champions.” The only problem is that there is only one trophy, not six. Lidom is still waiting for the decision of Public Health on the increase in percentages that will be allowed in the different stadiums. Of course, now they have a bad environment due to the increase in infections. Is that understood? I would say that they will have to start at their discretion and wait until November for the evolution of the subject.

OF COMPLIANCE: Juan Marichal turned 84 years old yesterday. His health is fine and he resides between Miami and Santo Domingo. My congratulations to him and family. He was the winner of 243 games in MLB and Hall of Fame in 1983, the first Dominican. I was there and it was a beautiful experience.

PANAMANIAN: Steven Fuentes is the name of a native Panama pitcher who trains with the Eastern Stars. He is a relief specialist, has been a professional since 2014 and belongs to the Washington Nationals.

MONEY: Carlos Correa, the Puerto Rican shortstop for the Astros, goes to free agency after the world series. He earns US $ 11.7 this year and he will most likely investigate how his market value is doing. How much does it cost? Some say that he is looking for a long term for more than US $ 200 million.
