Quote:
Major League Baseball, its players' association and the Cuban Baseball Federation reached an agreement that will allow players from the island to sign big league contracts without defecting, an effort to eliminate the dangerous trafficking that had gone on for decades.

The agreement, which runs through Oct. 31, 2021, allows Cubans to sign under rules similar to those for players under contract to clubs in Japan, South Korea and Taiwan.

It's good that they won't have to take such a dangerous method at leaving Cuba but probably will cost them money over defecting and setting up residence in Mexico/Dominican.
