Yasiel Puig of the Dodgers

The Dodgers' Yasiel Puig is one of several Cuban baseball players who have made often harrowing journeys to the United States. Many, like Puig, were spirited away on speedboats to Mexico, Haiti or the Dominican Republic. Once there, they typically were held by traffickers before being released to agents — for a price.
