Cuban Defector Pursues Dream

Updated: Aug 21, 2018

The Miami Herald published an article today on Yolexandry Reina's journey from participation in the Florida Marlin's spring training this year. The article outlined Reina's defection from the Cuban national junior team in Canada, his travels to Costa Rica and his abandonment by his agent because of his confused immigration status. The article stated that "Reina, a 21 year old right hander, found his way back to Canada, only to be arrested for illegal entry, setting off an 18 month legal adventure that didn't end until the Miami firm of Zumpano Patricios & Winker, in concert with the Marlins, got him approved for a U.S. visa in January.
