Yoenis Cespedes To Meet With Miami Marlins Wednesday

For all the hype that Yoenis Cespesdes has drawn as a free agent outfielder this Winter, he has only hit the market fairly recently, and is just starting to make the rounds to meet with MLB teams. He traveled to Miami this week and will meet with the Marlins on Wednesday. According to Juan C. Rodriguez of the Sun-Sentinel, Cespedes told reporters and fans in Miami that he would like to play for the Marlins.

"It would be good [to play here]," said Cespedes, who spoke briefly with half a dozen media members and signed autographs before exiting the international arrivals lobby. "There are a lot of Cubans and they would support me a lot. Hopefully I can play for the Marlins."

Since it first became apparent that Cespedes would be available at some point this Winter, the Marlins have been a very logical destination considering their proximity to Cuba and their new-found money-spending ways.
