MLB Players: The All-Time Cuban-American Team
Infielders: Fernando Viña is the son of Cuban immigrants and had a distinguished career in the majors, during his solid 12-year career the infielder managed to garner an all-star selection and was a two-time gold glove winner during his time in St. Louis. During his career Viña hit a solid .282, which includes three seasons in which he hit over .300.
Alex González had a solid 13-year career in the majors primarily with the Toronto Bluejays and was regarded as a slick fielder with some good pop in his bat. The shortstop managed a decent .975 fielding percentage during his time in the big show and also launched 137 homeruns.
Nolan Arenado is on his way to the Hall of Fame. The son of a Guantanamo, Cuba native hits .295, slugged 227 round-trippers and has driven in 734 runs during a seven-year career. The third baseman has also garnered 7 gold gloves, 5 silver sluggers, and 5 all-star selections. Arenado is basically considered by most the best at his position for his generation and by the time he hangs up his cleats could have a bust in Cooperstown.
My first baseman would undoubtedly be Miami’s own Eric Hosmer, born to a Cuban mother and American father. Hosmer has been a solid two way player during his nine-year career in the big show. His four gold gloves and silver slugger are a testament to a solid stint in the majors. For his career the lefty hits .278 with 167 dingers,734 runs batted in, and more than 1,400 hits.
