Dariel Alvarez showcase: Dodgers show interest in Cuban OF

Koji Watanabe

The Dodgers were one of several teams to view the showcase of the 24-year-old outfielder on Wednesday in Fort Lauderdale.

The Dodgers were one of several teams on Wednesday with representatives in person to watch a showcase featuring Cuban outfielder Dariel Alvarez. The 24-year-old outfielder is a free agent, per Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com:

On Thursday, Alvarez, 24, a right-handed hitter who played for Camaguey in Serie Nacional, told MLB.com that he was declared a free agent by the Commissioner’s Office in January and cleared by the U.S. government to enter into a contract with a big league club a month later. He said a change in representation is part of the reason his appearance on the market has been delayed.

The Rangers, Royals, Diamondbacks, Padres, Mariners and Yankees were also in attendance at the showcase, per Sanchez. Perhaps the other teams that didn't show up weren't wowed by this promotional video:

Because Alvarez is older than 23 and because he played at least three seasons in a pro league in Cuba, he is not subject to the international spending cap.
