Two of the top Cuban players signed in 2012 are having trouble acquiring visas after using documents claiming permanent Haitian residency, according to multiple international sources.

Omar Luis, a 20-year-old Cuban lefty who signed with the Yankees for $4 million on July 1, and Henry Urrutia, a 25-year-old Cuban corner outfielder who signed with the Orioles for $778,500 on July 6, have not yet been able to acquire their visas. Both of them, according to Baseball America's sources, are still stuck in Haiti.

This is disappointing....but thankfully I do not believe it is as big of a deal due to his age.

Hopefully he is in the states by spring training...
