Cuba open to welcoming back defectors like Yasiel Puig, Yoenis Cespedes to field powerhouse team again | FOX Sports

Could the likes of Jose Abreu, Yoenis Cespedes and Yasiel Puig play on the Cuban national team at next year’s World Baseball Classic?

“Everything is on the table,” Cuban baseball commissioner Heriberto Suárez said in Spanish, when asked about the possibility in Havana during this week’s historic trip by President Obama, Major League Baseball and the Tampa Bay Rays.

Suárez went on to explain that any such arrangement would need to be part of a new, overall working agreement among the Cuban and American governments, MLB and the MLB Players Association.

While the sides aren’t close to reaching any deal, it’s noteworthy that the Cuban baseball federation would consider welcoming back defectors to the national team in any circumstance.
