Cuban outfielder Cespedes establishes residency 

The agent for Yoenis Céspedes says the Cuban outfielder has established legal residency in the Dominican Republic, the final hurdle to becoming a free agent.

Edgar Mercedes confirmed the residency in a telephone interview Tuesday.

Once Major League Baseball receives proof of Cespedes' residency, it will send a letter to all clubs verifying his status as a free agent.

Earlier this month, Cespedes said six major league teams — the Miami Marlins, Baltimore Orioles, Detroit Tigers, Cleveland Indians and the Chicago Cubs and White Sox — are interested in him.
