Biographical Information[edit]

Outfielder Randy Arozarena played two seasons for Pinar del Rio in the Cuban Serie Nacional, in 2013-14 and 2014-15. He saw a lot of playing time at 19 the second year, hitting .291/.412/.419 in 74 games. Pinar del Rio reached the 2015 Caribbean Series (and actually won the tournament) but he as left off its roster as by that time, he had defected. He reached Mexico, and in 2016 he played 5 games for the Toros de Tijuana in the Mexican League. He saw more playing time in the Mexican Pacific League in 2016-17, with the Mayos de Navojoa, where he hit .289 in 59 games.

Arozarena signed with the St. Louis Cardinals organization on August 1, 2016, and was first assigned to the Palm Beach Cardinals of the Florida State League in 2017, before finishing the year in the AA Texas League with the Springfield Cardinals. In 121 games between the two stops, he hit .266/.346/.437, with 32 doubles and 11 homers. He was a mid-season All-Star in the FSL. He returned to Navojoa after the season and had a great year in winter ball, as he hit .292 with 25 doubles and 14 homers in 64 games. He continued to do well in 2018, which he split between Springfield and the AAA Memphis Redbirds, as he hit a combined .274/.359/.433 in 113 games. He was selected to play for the World Team in the 2018 Futures Game and in 2019 was a non-roster invitee to the Cardinals' major league spring training.

On August 12, 2019, with Jose Martinez being placed on the injured list, and with Randy hitting .368/.442/.562 to that point at the AAA level, he was called up to the major league roster of the Cardinals. He made his debut two days later, on August 14th, going 2 for 4 in a 6-0 win over the Kansas City Royals.
