Yoelkis Cespedes aims to join brother Yoenis in the majors

Yoelkis Cespedes has played professionally in Cuba, appearing in the 2017 World Cup and the Caribbean Series. He defected from the Cuban National Team and has been biding his time to be eligible for signing by a major-league organization. The 22-year-old player is reportedly a five-tool player.

His brother, Yoenis Cespedes, has played seven seasons in the major, most recently with the New York Mets. However, he sat out all of the 2019 season due to an injury. He was runner-up for AL Rookie of the Year with Oakland in 2012, and has been an All-Star outfielder in 2014 and 2017. He has a Gold Glove and Silver Slugger Award to his credit.
