Cuban Players News for the 2024 Major League Baseball season. A compilation of several sources


Adolis García went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer to lift the Rangers to a 4-0 win over the Guardians.

García knocked a base hit in the fourth inning, then took Nick Sandlin deep for a two-run homer in the sixth to extend the Rangers lead. The 31-year-old slugger has multiple hits in back-to-back games amid a cold stretch. Prior to Tuesday, he had gone 19 games without a multi-hit effort, batting a meager .153 (11-for-72) in that span. García is up to 10 homers while slashing .259/.306/.494 with 34 RBI and four steals across 183 plate appearances, although his high strikeout rate (0.273) might still raise concerns.


Yandy Díaz went 1-for-4 with a walk and big two-run single in a win against the Red Sox on Wednesday.

Díaz went 1-for-4 with a walk and two RBIs Wednesday in a 4-3 victory against the Red Sox. Díaz had the go-ahead single in the sixth inning when the Rays scored three decisive runs. Díaz's single was scalded at 110.4 MPH. After a slow start to the season, his average has improved to .253 since May 3.


Diamondbacks' Lourdes Gurriel: Delivers clutch hit

Gurriel went 1-for-3 with a walk, a double and an RBI in Wednesday's 2-1 win over Cincinnati. Gurriel's two-out, bloop double in the eighth inning plated the winning run. The outfielder has been fighting it at the plate and entered the contest batting .121 (8-for-66) with two RBI over the previous 16 games. His average has dropped .231 due to the slump, but Gurriel remains an important middle-of-the-order bat for Arizona and is second on the club with 25 RBI over 40 games.


Jorge Soler started rehab assignment and most likely will be activated Friday.

San Francisco Giants designated hitter Jorge Soler began a minor-league rehab assignment with Triple-A Sacramento on Wednesday. Soler is slated to play in two games in the minors and will likely be back with the Giants on Friday for the series opener against the division-rival Colorado Rockies if everything goes well there. Before hitting the injured list with a strained right shoulder, the 32-year-old slugger slashed a disappointing .202/.294/.361 with five homers, four doubles, and eight RBI through 119 at-bats (34 games) as San Fran's everyday DH. Despite those shortcomings, Soler would have a great opportunity to jump-start his season while facing off with a Rockies team that entered Wednesday’s action ranked last in team ERA (5.16) and WHIP (1.53) in 2024.


Bryan Ramos was out of the lineup Wednesday.

Bryan Ramos was not in the starting lineup for the White Sox Wednesday. Ramos was removed from Tuesday’s game with a left quad injury. He is consider day-to-day for now.


Aledmys Díaz played five innings on defense Tuesday.

Díaz started at third base and played five innings in Triple-A Las Vegas' win over El Paso on Tuesday, going 1-for-3 with an RBI single. Díaz picked up the first hit of his three-game rehab stint on his final at-bat of the evening, and he took another step in the right direction by logging five frames on defense for the second straight game. The veteran is likely to continue taking a day off between appearances for the moment as his ramp-up following a long layoff continues.
