2016

Fernandez had been one of the top players in Cuba and was the No. 3 hitter for Cuba's 2013 World Baseball Classic team. He hit .326/.482/.456 in the Serie Nacional, Cuba's professional league, in 2014-15, and Baseball America at the time ranked him as the No. 3 player in Cuba. Fernandez tried to leave the country in October 2014, but was caught and suspended for the rest of the 2014-15 Serie Nacional season. He was successful in his second attempt to leave Cuba in December 2015 and will try to sign with a MLB team for the 2016 season. As a 27-year-old player he will be exempt from international bonus pools. He's seen as major league ready and could be a starter at second base for a MLB team, but the long layoff from playing baseball could mean that he spends time in the minors initially.

2015

Fernandez has been one of the top players in Cuba and was the No. 3 hitter for Cuba's 2013 World Baseball Classic team. He hit .326/.482/.456 in the Serie Nacional, Cuba's professional league, in 2014-15, and Baseball America ranked him as the No. 3 player in Cuba. He defected from Cuba in October and will try to sign with a team before the 2015 season. Fernandez could be an immediate starter at second base in the majors.
