Aledmys Diaz To Be Cleared In Two Weeks

The latest Cuban defector is 23 year old shortstop Aledmys Diaz and he is expected to be cleared to sign with any Major League team in the next two weeks. Diaz was originally declared ineligible to sign with teams after he falsified his age on his documents after claiming to be 23 years old and was only 22 at the time. The New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox were two of the reported eight teams interested in the shortstop with the intent of sticking him in the minor leagues for a season or two.

The Diaz signing may be what is keeping Stephen Drew from signing, although I doubt it. The Yankees have had interest in both recently so maybe these two guys will have home soon.
