The Cuban Baseball Federation (CBF) announced on Wednesday the Las Tunas Lumberjacks roster to the 2019 Caribbean Series, highlighted by the return of internationals Liván Moinelo (Fukuoka), Yurisbel Gracial (Fukuoka), Alfredo Despaigne (Fukuoka) and Raidel Martínez (Chunichi) to the team.
Of the 27 athletes, only 14 from the recently crowned Las Tunas team have secured a spot on the final roster.
The Las Tunas team will begin the tournament on Saturday, February 2 against Dominican Republic. On February 3 they will face the host country, Venezuela, while on February 4 Mexico will be the rival. On February 5 Cuba will take the day off to end the elimination round on February 6, against Puerto Rico.
Although the 2019 site was announced during Serie del Caribe 2018 in February last year, the decision to go to Venezuela remains controversial due to the ongoing political and social instability there.
The Caribbean Professional Baseball Confederation announced today that within 24 hours it will be known if Venezuela continue to be the host country for the tournament or if a new venue is being sought.
The roster is as follows.
