The Mexican Pacific League championship semifinals began yesterday with four teams: Cañeros de Los Mochis v. Yaquis de Obregón and Vendados de Mazatlán v. Charros de Jalisco. I am particularly interested in the Charros because two of my favorite former Baysox – and Cuban baseball defectors – Henry Urrutia and Dariel Alvarez, are on the team.

Urrutia began his career with Las Tunas in Cuba, where he played from 2005 to 2010. He signed with the Baltimore Orioles in 2012 after defecting to Haiti in 2011. He played in the Orioles system until they released him in 2017. Urrutia then signed with the Red Sox and was assigned to their double A team through the end of the season before being given free agency in November 2017.

Alvarez played for Camaguey in Cuba from 2006 to 2012 first as a pitcher, then as a first baseman. He defected to Mexico and played in the Mexican League before signing with the Orioles in 2013. Alvarez played in the O’s system through 2017. He elected free agency in November 2018.

Below are Henry and Dariel’s stats. The MPL semifinals continue tonight.

Happy weekend!
