On Tuesday evening, agent Jaime Torres confirmed that Cuban defectors OF Yasser Gomez, RHP Yadel Marti and RHP Juan Yasser Serrano were declared free agents by Major League Baseball. But it was what Torres said next that made these players' situation more intriguing. Torres suggested that if a team signed any of these players soon, they could possibly be available this season, perhaps even by Sept. 1, which would make the players eligible to play in the postseason.
