MIAMI -- A year ago, the Marlins weighed whether to sign hard-throwing left-hander Aroldis Chapman, who wound up with the Reds.

 

Once again, the Marlins are showing interest in a Cuban-born player.

 

MLB.com has confirmed the team on Wednesday is watching a workout for Yasiel Balaguer, an 18-year-old Cuban outfielder. His athleticism and defense have drawn comparisons to Andruw Jones.

 

Balaguer arrived in Miami in November after leaving Cuba while traveling to Mexico. The 18-year-old is being represented by Carlos Perez of Miami Sports Consulting.

 

According to the Miami New Times, Balaguer is looking for a deal in the $18-20 million range. There are conflicting reports on the outfielder's talents. The Miami Herald has stated that he is "one of the biggest promising stars of Cuban baseball," while Baseball America considers him "solid" while having "average tools."

 

Balaguer is also expected to work out for the Mariners and Cubs.

How can you say that? You have zero comparison platform.
