Yulieski Gurriel is taking in the ballgame at Dodger Stadium Tuesday night. The Cuban infielder was recently declared a free agent by Major league Baseball.
The rumors have been flying around about where 32-year-old might land. Naturally, the Dodgers are right in the middle of the rumors given their track record in the international market.
The intriguing part is the that Gurriel's younger brother, Lourdes, can become a free agent in October when he turns 23. It's not a lock, but getting one may get the other as well.
Yulieski has a career .335/.417/.580 slash line with 250 homers in 5491 plate appearances, mostly in Serie Nacional, Cuba’s top league. Getting the pair could interest the Dodgers since the team's third base situation is unclear past this season.
Could this be a meeting with the Dodgers or just a random trip to a great baseball park? We'll have to wait and find out.
