Cubans in the System

I would call it the Luhnow effect…

Leosdany Molina (age 22) has had a decent start at Lo-A Fayetteville. He’s the regular SS and based on stats (and priority playing time) alone, seems to be a good one.

I missed this signing earlier. He was assigned to the DSL Orange club where he’s off to a 7-14 start thru 5 games with 4 walks versus 2 whiffs.

More success recruiting Cubans. This team better sign Yuli as a special assistant the moment his playing career is over.
