9. Kendrys Morales (Cuba)

Barred from playing in his native Cuba after making contact with an agent, Morales defected to Florida on a raft in 2004. The first basemen was having a career-best year last season for the Los Angeles Angels, until September 10, when–after hitting what may be the most unfortunate game-winning grand slam of all time–he fractured his lower left leg while rounding home plate, and hasn’t played since. The lowly Angels eagerly anticipate his return.
