If I were Cashman, I would certainly take a flier on these guys.
Marti and Gomez
I know I'm a little late on this one (mid-year exams...), but Yadel Marti and Yasser Gomez have defected from Cuba and are ready to hit the MLB free agent pool. Marti and Gomez are said to be 29 and 28 years of age respectively. Both players used to play for the Industriales de la Habana, a very popular team in Cuba (according to Enrique Rojas). Marti, a pitcher who dominated in the WBC, had a career 3.23 ERA with the Industriales. Gomez had a .331 career average with the Industriales.
