A top Cuban baseball prospect is going public after defecting from the island and settling in South Florida nearly a month ago.

Dayan Viciedo, 18, plays third base. He will speak Monday in Hialeah along with his agent, Jaime Torres.

Viciedo played with Villa Clara of the major leagues in Cuba. He is now training in Miami in hopes of joining other successful Cuban baseball players who have defected and signed with major league teams in the U.S.
