Yoenis Cespedes – Center Field – Oakland Athletics

Following his baseball brethren like – Orlando ‘El Duque’ Hernandez and Jose Contreras – the 26-year old Cuban defector and former Cuban National Team All-Star will have all eyes watching his every baseball move after signing a four-year, $36 million deal. According to scouts, Cespedes has the makings of a five-tool player given his athletic frame and natural power. While some feel the A’s took a major gamble, Oakland hopes Cespedes will bring needed offense and fans to a team that has been rebuilding since their last post-season appearance in 2006.
