On March 24, 2015 – Cuban defectors continue to find lots of suitors for their services, as today IF Héctor Olivera Jr. signs a six-year deal with the Los Angeles Dodgers worth $62.5 million. In contrast with other recent signees, Olivera is already 29 years old and coming off some injuries at the end of his tenure in Cuba. When healthy, he was one of the top players on the island however, and the Dodgers are betting that he will age well.
