He pitched for the Nats starting in 2010 and in Mexico starting in 2018.  If time was operating conventionally, the Nats did not sign him out of the Mexican League.
unless we did the time warp again.

His Mexican heritage is about as true as his mid 90s fastball

but he's listed as having pitched at Aguascalientes in the wiki.  Did we sign him out of the Mexico League or did we sign him straight out of Cuba?
I could be very wrong but didn't he "jump ship" when the Cuban team was in Mexico and claimed asylum where we eventually signed him?

yes.  I wasn't sure if he played a few games after he defected and established Mexican residency.  I thought that back then that was the way to become a free agent and go to the highest bidder rather than coming straight to the US (which would subject you to the draft).

Two of the best players in baseball to the Dodgers for mediocre prospects?

- Ruiz, the catcher, looks good. Not as good as Yan Gomes, but he's young.

- Gray is a definite maybe. He pitched well in some innings and got bombed in some others. Again, he's young.

The other two have a long way to go. Casey will have a do-or-die season in AAA, but he was good in AA. Carillo failed AA, so he should repeat. Then we'll know better.
