    Those earlier tries at leaving Cuba landed him a suspension from playing for the Cuban national team for the last two years, as well as for his team in the Cuban National Series, the island’s equivalent of MLB. To that end, Philadelphia reportedly agreed to terms with Cuban defector Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez, a right-handed pitcher, on a six-year, $49 million deal with an $11 million vesting option for a seventh year. So who exactly is this Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez? Glad you asked! Gonzalez, who is 6-foot-2-inches, 185 pounds and reportedly 26 years old, defected from Cuba early in 2013, a successful departure after a number of failed attempts. No one in the baseball media is quite sure if the Phillies are buyers or sellers going into the trading deadline this year, but Ruben Amaro clearly believes his team can still make some noise in 2013.
