As Havana pitcher Andy Rodríguez establishes himself in college baseball in the United States, his friend and teammate in Cuba Bryan Anthony Chi also receives excellent news in his aspirations to sign a contract with a Major League team.
This is the declaration as a free agent of the young prospect from the capital, as announced on Tuesday by his representative Carlos Pérez.
This is an extremely important step for Chi, since from next February 2 he will be available to sign a contract with any Major League team, according to his own agent.
In a conversation this Monday night within the Swing Complete show, Pérez recognized the excellent work that Chi is doing with a view to being in the best possible physical shape, and in this he included the discipline with the food issue.
“Bryan is a young man who is very focused and that adds to his excellent conditions that augur an excellent future for him in the United States. I am convinced not only that he will sign but that his prospects in professional baseball are very great, ”Carlos said exclusively with our late-night YouTube slot.
Until last season, Bryan Chi was the first Industriales pitcher and his meritorious results within the most recent season led him to form the national team that took part in the Florida Pre-Olympic tournament. There he pitched in a couple of games and after an irregular first relief he was seen to be in very good shape in the closing match of the first phase against the Colombian team.
At that moment he decided to return to Cuba and it was then that he made the decision to leave Cuban baseball after finishing his individual participation in the U23 World Championship staged in Mexico.
Unlike Andy and others like César Prieto and Pablo Luis Guillén, Bryan decided to opt for the draft that most of the time is much more favorable from the economic point of view and in several other aspects. That also made another great prospect as is the case of Sancti Spiritus outfielder Geyser Cepeda, who like Chi left the Cuba team in the competition held on Mexican soil.
In addition to Chi, catchers Luis Enrique Serrano and Yosvel Zerquera were also declared free agents this Tuesday, as well as pitchers Leonardo Hernández, Darián Enríquez and left-hander Duvierl Hurtado, according to Francys Romero.
