Matanzas players José Miguel Fernández and Lazaro Herrera were absent for reasons unknown to the game against Las Tunas last Sunday. Some sources reveal that both have escaped from Cuba.
INDER has warned the family they might have to leave the house they occupy in the city of Matanzas, as property of that entity.
Fernandez, 26, participated in the Third World Baseball Classic and the Caribbean Series, played in Venezuela. He had a .300 average in the playoffs last National Series. His cousin Herrera was .381.
If the information is confirmed, the players would join the long list of Cubans who have left the island to seek a professional career in the majors.
