Baseball: Cuban Yoenis Céspedes will reinforce the Águilas Cibaeñas

The Águilas Cibaeñas announced this Friday the hiring of the Cuban baseball player Yoenis Céspedes, facing the tournament of the Professional Baseball League of the Dominican Republic (Lidom).

“The Power Returns! We announce the hiring of Cuban outfielder Yoenis Céspedes,” the team said on its social networks.

Céspedes played for eight seasons in the Major Leagues in the United States, with the Oakland Athletics, Boston Red Sox, Detroit Tigers and New York Metros. During his time in MLB, he hit .273 with 165 home runs and 528 runs.

The general manager of the team, Ángel Ovalles, explained that the Cuban outfielder, who has not seen action in organized baseball for two years, showed that he has the tools to perform in the Dominican tournament.

“Céspedes is a power player, who will be in the middle of our line-up and I want to let the eaglet fanatic and all those who follow this franchise know that, in order to bring him here as a reinforcement, there is an evaluation process that supports this hiring”, expressed Ovalles, about the 36-year-old outfielder, a native of Campechuela, in the Cuban province of Granma.

For Céspedes, this will be his second stop in Lidom, since he was with the Eagles during the 2011-2012 season.
