Cuban authorities say hard-hitting outfielder Yasmani Tomas has defected, multiple media outlets reported Friday.
Tomas went 6-for-16 during the WBC with two homers, one double and four strikeouts.
According to official statistics, Tomas hit .275 for Industriales last season with 10 home runs and 59 RBIs in the 90-game regular season and seven playoff games.
He dipped to six home runs while hitting .290 in 257 plate appearances for Industriales this season, but a source told Baseball America that may have been because of an arm injury suffered while crashing into an outfield wall.
10 HR in 90 games is a pace of 18 in 162 games. That doesn’t sound all that hard hitting to me.
