MLB investigating the age of Cuban shortstop Aledmys Diaz

Major League Baseball is investigating the age of Cuban free-agent shortstop Aledmys Diaz, reports . In a twist, is investigating him for being younger than he presented rg defender Branislav Ivanovic insists Eden Hazard will come good for Real Madrid.The pair are former long time Chelsea teammates.Ivanovic told Marca, “I think he is not well physically. He was injured a couple of times, but everyone knows that Hazarhimself, not older. Players usually try to make them themselves younger and more desirable to clubs.

Diaz, who defected to Mexico, presented himself as a 23-year-old born on Jan. 8, 1990. That date conflicts with other documents and sources, which indicate an Aug. 1, 1990, birthdate. That would make Diaz only 22 years old, which means he would be subject to the international spending caps put in place by the latest Collective Bargaining Agreement. Teams can sign players age 23 or older for any amount.

“I only go by the documentation that I have from the player,” said Jaime Torres, Diaz’s agent. “I’ve seen from different rosters, different ages for players in Cuba, so I don’t pay much attention to Manchester United last summer for the Hornets.”I spent 14 years at United. I grew up there and it was a massive part of my life,” Whelan told the Watford club website.“I’ve still got lots of friends there so it will be a strange one, wanting them twhat is put on the pages from Cuba … Only the player and the family should know the correct date of birth, not the sports authority from Cuba, the Cuban government. What I have, showing his date of birth, is 1/8/90—January 8, 1990.”

Torres added that MLB is insisting Diaz present an unblocking license from the Office of Foreign Assets Control before he can agree to a contract. Players can typically prese League clash with Manchester City.Gasperini has labelled international friendlies “useless” and demanded a single international break after top scorer Zapata was ruled out against City with an abductor strain sustained with Colombia.”‘I reacted withnt an OFAC unblocking license or two permanent residency documents from a non-Cuba country, but MLB wants the former in this case. Badler says scouting reports on Diaz are “modest.”

Roger Clemens to return to Astros in ‘active role’

By the sounds of it, Roger Clemens will not be pitching for the again. He will, however, be teachingarding the future of midfielder Lucas Torreira.The Uruguayan has been the subject of exit rumours since he arrived at the club last summer.Reports have emerged from Italy suggesting he could go back to Serie A on an initial loan and eventually a perm pitching in some capacity for the Astros. as saying this about Clemens’ anticipated return to the organization: “We’ve got the whole calendar mapped out, and we’re going to sort of figure out what makes sense. But the idea is to plug him in in spring training, plug him in throughout the season and just have him get a lot more involved with our pitchers.”

The “throughout the season” part of Luhnow’s comments suggests that this ishampton last weekend.Reid told the Liverpool Echo: “He’s shown a desire, he’s looking to hit forward passes, he’s good with or without the ball and he’s notched against Southampton at the back stick.”I think his form has been terrific and it just sho going to be something more than the usual “spring-training instructor” gig that so many franchise stalwarts dip their toes into from time to time. And, yes, the Astros already have a pitching coach.

Regardless of what you think of Clemens, his greatness is unassailable. And while greatness doesn’t necessarily iman.The 19-year-old centre-back becomes manager Steve Cooper’s second summer recruit to the Liberty Stadium.Wilmot began his career at Stevenage, earning a call-up for England Under-19s after impressing in League Two.Premier League Watford paid £1.5mply an ability to impart knowledge, there’s no harm in exposing young pitchers to the wisdom of an all-time great.
