2023 Caribbean Series | The Agricultores' roster for the tournament has been announced

The pitching staff of this team is weak, which might lead to the worst performance in these events for Cuba

Today, the final roster of the Agricultores team representing Cuba in the upcoming 2023 Caribbean Series was announced. The tournament will take place for the first time since 2006 in two different cities, Caracas and La Guaira in Venezuela.

Eight teams are expected to be in the Caribbean Series 2023: Curaçao, Panama, Cuba, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Colombia, Mexico and Venezuela, the host nation. The competition begins on February 2 and runs until the 10th of the month.

So far the WildCats from Curaçao, Tigres del Licey from the Dominican Republic, Vaqueros de Montería from Colombia, Indios de Mayagüez representing Puerto Rico, Federales de Chiriqui from Panama and from Cuba, Agricultores, the champions of their countries appear confirmed, while Venezuela and Mexico are still to be announced.

Cuba, which attends the 2023 edition of the tournament as a guest after an absence of three years, decided in 2022 to start an Elite League to raise the level of baseball on the island. Agricultores, Cuba's recently titled team from the Elite tournament, will take part in the 2023 Caribbean Series.

Agricultores, a team with a reputation for being offensive, could face serious problems in this edition of the Caribbean Series, with a pitching staff that leaves a lot to be desired and is not at the level of its Caribbean rivals.

Here is the announced roster.
