Orioles Sign Cuban Outfielder Dariel Alvarez And He Has An Awesome YouTube Preview Video
Update: Bummer, the video now seems to be private. It was fun while it lasted.
On Thursday afternoon the Orioles agreed to terms with 24 year old Cuban outfield prospect Dariel Alvarez. According to MLB.com’s Jesse Sanchez the deal is worth $800,000. Alvarez is at the Orioles Spring Training complex in Sarasota awaiting the results of his physical.
He’s a right-handed hitter who defected last summer and played professionally in Vera Cruz, Mexico. More importantly though, he’s got an epic YouTube preview video that was tweeted around when the news of his signing circulated earlier today.
