Kendry Morales may now be unable to come to the United States until next year.
According to the Los Angeles Times, Morales needs a Dominican passport to travel here, but can't get a passport without Dominican citizenship, which is a long process. Alay Soler, another Cuban player who defected and signed with the Mets last August, is still waiting for Dominican citizenship.

I dug myself a deep hole in the regular draft by not getting any closers or middle relievers. (I was able to get Tsao and Brazoban off WW and Lyon off FA).
Our minor league draft is coming up and I am wondering if Kendry is worth a minor league roster spot. Right now I have Morales, Gathright, and Hamels. I am trying not to activate Gathright unless I know he will get the AB's this year, so I can have him next year as free keeper (if he goes >150 AB's).
I was looking to draft a Crain or League to offer another source of saves when Gagne comes back. Sorry so long - all advice welcome. My 2nd year with keepers and with minor leaguers.
