Biographical Information[edit]

Yoan López was 15-13 with a 3.76 ERA in three seasons for Isla de la Juventud before defecting from Cuba. Despite mediocre numbers in Cuba, he was signed for $8.27 million by the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2015, a record for an international signee. He made it to the majors three years later and was lit up for 3 runs (2 homers) in 1/3 of an inning over his first two outings.
