RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Alfredo Despaigne.
Despaigne has been a top player in Cuba's Serie Nacional, setting the single-season home run record. He hit .389 with three home runs in six games for Cuba in the 2013 World Baseball Classic and then hit .338/.364/.564 with eight home runs in 33 games for Piratas de Campeche in the Mexican League last summer as part of a new program that allows Cuban players to compete in foreign leagues. However, the U.S. Government has said the policy change won't allow Cuban citizens to play in the U.S. At age 27 and in his prime, Despaigne would likely command a large contract if he were to move to the majors.
One of Cuba's top hitters, he was the starting right fielder in the 2009 World Baseball Classic.
