Despaigne hit .333 (7-for-21) with three doubles in five games for Cuba during the World Baseball Classic.
ANALYSIS
Despaigne may be the best player of his generation who hasn't played in MLB. He wasn't as much an impact bat (no homers) in this WBC but was still productive. He's set to return to Japan and play for Softbank Hawks in 2023 after an injury-plagued 2022 season, Prensa Latina reports. It's very unlikely he'll ever play in MLB as he plans to continue to play in the Cuban Baseball League as well.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2014
2010
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.
