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


As the Rangers triumphed 9-3 over the Rays on Monday, Adolis García hit a solo home run and finished with two RBI.

A one-sided affair in Tampa Bay ended with Garcia's third round-tripper of the season, taking journeyman righty Chris Devenski deep in the eighth inning. The homer was Adolis' 100th career HR. It was precisely at Tropicana Field on April 15, 2021, that Adolis hit his first home run of his MLB career. Tonight he also collected an RBI after being hit by a pitch in the ensuing frame. With three home runs, six RBI, and one stolen base through four contests, the 31-year-old player has continued his impressive 2023 postseason performance.


First save of the season for Aroldis Chapman.

Despite only getting one out, Chapman converted his first save opportunity against the Nationals on Monday night. In total, he threw three strikes. Chapman's save broke a tie with Mesa and he is now alone in 21st place in MLB saves. With eight more saves, Chapman could tie John Wetteland for 16th on the list.


José Abreu was back in the lineup Monday against the Blue Jays.

Abreu sat out Sunday’s game against the Yankees due to soreness in his hand, but the 37-year-old is back while playing first base and hitting sixth Monday against the Blue Jays. He collected his first hit of the season and went 1-for-4 with a strikeout. Abreu seems to be in another slow start for the season slashing .067/.176/.067.


Yenier Cano threw a scoreless inning Monday. Dairon Blanco with two steals.

In a 6-4 win for the Orioles, Yenier Cano threw a 1 1/3 scoreless inning against Kansas City in his second outing of the season. He allowed two hits, walked one, and struck out one. Yenier Cano played a key role for the Orioles in 2023. With a sharp breaking ball and the ability to throw fast pitches, he can effectively pitch against most hitters. In the same game for Kansas City, pinch runner Dairon Blanco stole two bases and scored the tying run in the ninth inning. The Orioles put the game away in the bottom of the frame.


Against the Yankees, Lourdes Gurriel Jr. went hitless.

In a 5-2 loss to the Yankees, Gurriel Jr. had a bad night for the D-backs. It was a 0-for-4 game for him with a strikeout. In the third inning, when the Yankees scored three runs, he also made a throwing error.


Díaz and Arozarena went hitless against the Rangers on Monday.

Yandy Díaz and Randy Arozarena went hitless in a 9-3 loss to the Rangers on Monday.  Díaz went 0-for-5 with three strikeouts while Arozarena was 0-for-3 with a walk. A sixth straight postseason run is on the line for the Tampa Bay team as both players are key contributors.


Andy Ibáñez returned to the lineup Monday.

Andy Ibáñez returned to the lineup for the Detroit Tigers against the New York Mets Monday. Ibáñez was back after coming up with a clutch go-ahead, pinch-hit RBI single to top the White Sox Sunday. He started at second base and batted second against the Mets, and went 1-for-3 with two strikeouts.


On Monday, Luis Robert Jr. struck out four times. Moncada had two hits.

In Monday's 9-0 loss to the Braves, Robert went 0-for-4 with four strikeouts. He batted .264/.315/.542 in 2023 while hitting 38 home runs and stealing 20 bases, but it was also the first year he played over 98 games for Chicago. In order to repeat that performance, he will have to stay healthy. In the same game, Yoán Moncada went 2-for-3 with a walk batting second in the lineup.
