Report: Yoenis Cespedes To Meet With Miami Marlins Tomorrow
Cuban outfielder Yoenis Cespedes is scheduled to meet with the Miami Marlins tomorrow, according to MLB.com.
The 26-year-old free-agent was given his travel visa today, which will allow him to visit the United States from the Dominican Republic.
Cespedes is considered by many to be one of the top Cuban prospects in years. Some project the 26-year-old to develop into a power hitting centerfielder at the Major League level. It is believed that he will demand a contract higher than the $30.25 million deal given to Aroldis Chapman in 2010. Last season Cespedes hit .333/.424/.667 with 33 home runs and 99 RBI in 90 games in Cuba.
