The Clues

My name is the War Horse, I grew up in Cuba and it took 5 tries before I was able to be smuggled out to play baseball. I have lived in Miami, Florida ever since leaving Cuba. My first minor league season was in 2012 and I had a .354 batting average and with runners in scoring position I hit .375.

When I made my Dodgers debut in 2013, I collected my first major league hit, and I ended the game by throwing out a Padres runner after catching a ball. The next morning my name was in the headlines everywhere that I looked. My second game was even better than my first, I hit 2 home runs, one nearly left the park over the left field pavilion, collected 3 hits, and drove in 5 runs. I even got my first curtain call that day. It was a great series.

In 2014 I was named to the NL All-Star team and competed in the home run derby. I was having a lot of fun playing baseball, and whenever I thought that I had hit a home run I would flip my bat. There was one game that I hit 3 triples against the Giants, but I thought they were home runs when I hit them. The only thing that kept them from going out is the deep and tall right field wall, so I flipped the bat 3 times that day and didn’t even hit a home run.

I did not get along with Don Mattingly in 2015, and ended up losing my starting job. I also was tormented by my hamstring and spent most of the season on the disabled list. When I did play I didn’t have fun like I used to, and I stopped trying. I was really thankful when our new manager Dave Roberts told me that he was giving me a clean slate. During the off-season I worked off a lot of the fat that I had picked up and I began to work hard again. When I arrived at spring training everybody was commenting on how it seemed like I actually wanted to play, and I did.
