Major League Baseball, Cuban Baseball Federation agrees with historical business

After more than two years of negotiations, Major League Baseball and the Cuban Baseball Federation have reached an agreement that would allow Cuban players to join major league organizations without being wrong. Although the agreement could be resurrected if officials of the Trump administration roll back Obama's provisions paving the way for the historic pact, told sources familiar with the situation to Yahoo Sports. The agreement, which is expected to be announced Wednesday afternoon, aims to stop smuggling trafficking – situations that have led to the kidnapping, threatening and extortion of players. Players would come to the US on work visa, and teams would pay CBF, a non-governmental organization running pro baseball in Cuba, for release of their rights according to sources. Similar agreements are found in Japan, Korea and Taiwan. The agreement with Cuba, which runs through 2021, 25-year-old players will get a mandatory release so that they can come to the United States. Younger players would be released at CBF's own discretion, sources said. Major League teams would pay a release fee in addition to the money paid by a player. For people under 25, the fee would be 25 percent, and only the money paid to the players would count against the team's international signing bonus. For those who are 25 years and older, who are considered professional, the fee would be on a sliding scale between 15 and 20 percent.

After more than two years of negotiations, Major League Baseball and the Cuban Baseball Federation have reached an agreement that would allow Cuban players to join major league organizations without being wrong. Although the agreement could be resurrected if officials of the Trump administration roll back Obama’s provisions paving the way for the historic pact, told sources familiar with the situation to Yahoo Sports.

The agreement, which is expected to be announced Wednesday afternoon, aims to stop smuggling trafficking – situations that have led to the kidnapping, threatening and extortion of players. Players would come to the US on work visa, and teams would pay CBF, a non-governmental organization running pro baseball in Cuba, for release of their rights according to sources.

Similar agreements are found in Japan, Korea and Taiwan. The agreement with Cuba, which runs through 2021, 25-year-old players will get a mandatory release so that they can come to the United States. Younger players would be released at CBF’s own discretion, sources said.

Major League teams would pay a release fee in addition to the money paid by a player. For people under 25, the fee would be 25 percent, and only the money paid to the players would count against the team’s international signing bonus. For those who are 25 years and older, who are considered professional, the fee would be on a sliding scale between 15 and 20 percent.

If the players are still defective, sources say there will be a mandatory waiting time until they sign. The 25-year-old professionals would have to wait until the next signing period for free agents starting about a week after the World Series end. The punishment is much harder for younger players: They should wait until July 2 after an interruption, according to sources. Should a 16-year shortfall in June 2019 be signed on July 2, 2020. If he were to be defective in August 2019, he would not be entitled to sign until 2 July 2021 under the terms of the agreement.

When the Obama administration released restrictions on companies in Cuba, the MLB CBF hired in the hope of stopping the abuse of cubans who simply wanted to play baseball.

At the same time, the work of lemons in Washington, DC showed the importance of an agreement with Cuba. MLB spent $ 1.32 million lobbies last year and $ 999,000 in the third quarter of this year on issues related to Cuba, according to financial information documents. While there is significant support for the agreement among players and others who long hoped to see Cuban baseball find their rightful place in the heart of MLB, government clinics – and expats who think it’s a Cuba contract that is wrong – can push the MLB to abandon that.

Despite many years of lobbying and negotiations, MLB is still uncertain about how much, if any, the pressure the government wants to exercise. The hope is that the mission’s mission – making the road safer for players – considers possible concerns from the National Security Council or other government entities that can oppose the deal.

If the government chooses not to intervene, players can start to MLB as soon as today, according to sources. Furthermore, it could pave the way for US cubans already to possibly join the country’s World Baseball Classic team when the tournament returns 2021.
