MISE À DAY
Yordan Manduley and Yoelkis Guibert, two Cuban players, will finally join the Capitales de Québec after having had to wait a few months to complete the administrative procedures necessary for their arrival.
The Frontier League baseball team has announced that the Cubans will be in Quebec City this weekend. They had agreed with the Capitals before the start of the season.
“These are two players who will be immediately at the heart of our roster when they arrive and who will have a big impact on our chances of winning the Frontier League championship,” manager Patrick Scalabrini said in a statement before Thursday's game against the New York Boulders.
Quebec is in an excellent position in the standings, with the team enthroned the top in the East by virtue of his 25-9 record.
Manduley, 36, is the second best hitter in Capitals history, having played for the representatives of the Capitale-Nationale for five seasons at the time of the Can-Am League. In Cuba last season, he batted .361. He mainly plays as a shortstop or second base player.
Guibert is known for his ability to hit the trails. In 2021-22 he led the Cuban league with 78 RBIs that season. The fast 27-year-old outfielder has also stood out for several years with his country's national team.
