Guatemala Captures Narco-submarine in Pacific Waters

first_imgBy Dialogo July 13, 2010 The Guatemalan Navy has captured a narco-submarine loaded with five tons of cocaine headed for the United States, Guatemalan authorities said Sunday. The navy, in collaboration with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), intercepted the seventeen-meter-long vessel Friday, in Pacific coastal waters, and arrested four Colombians who were on board. “There was a compartment for sleeping, another for the machinery, and a cargo compartment full of cocaine,” Guatemalan armed forces spokesperson Byron Gutiérrez said at a press conference. The four men arrested remained in the custody of the DEA. Every year, the drug cartels traffic hundreds of tons of South American cocaine to the United States. In October 2009, a similar submarine was found about 175 kilometers from the Guatemalan coast, with ten tons of cocaine on board.last_img read more

Angels Notes: Six-man rotation could prompt search for defensive flexibility

first_imgLAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — While the Angels are still debating whether to use a six-man rotation to accommodate Shohei Ohtani in 2018, they are also preparing for the ripple effect that could have on their position player roster.General Manager Billy Eppler said Monday at the Winter Meetings that the Angels are still planning to have seven relievers, which would mean a 13-man pitching staff if they have six starters. That is one more pitcher than normal, which means one fewer position player.“It’s made you kind of reorder the names of different positional categories,” Eppler said. “Which one of these names has more positional flexibility in their back pocket. The ones that do might stand out a little more.”Among the players the Angels still need to acquire are a backup shortstop, a fourth outfielder and a right-handed hitting corner infielder to share time with left-handed Luis Valbuena. The Angels have had discussions this winter with Mike Moustakas, who is the top third baseman on the market, according to a baseball source. The talks aren’t believed to have progressed to any advanced stage. While Moustakas is a natural fit for the Angels, there are few teams looking for an everyday third baseman, so it’s possible the Angels are just waiting for the price to drop. If the Angels could find one player who can fill two of those roles, that would obviously be attractive.“I always put a premium on flexibility, but it might be a little bit more now,” Eppler said.Free agent infielder Eduardo Nuñez or Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Freddy Galvis, who is on the trade block, could both be fits for the Angels. Nuñez is primarily a third baseman, but he can also back up at short. Galvis can play second or third, too.Eppler said the Angels will decide before the start of spring training if they are going to use a six-man rotation. He also said there’s a hybrid scenario in which one of the Angels relievers makes regular spot starts. That would seem to be a job for JC Ramirez.ALSOThe Angels signed outfielder Rymer Liriano to a minor league deal. Liriano was considered a top-100 prospect in 2012 and 2013, but he has not lived up to that promise so far. Liriano, 26, has hit .220 in 167 major league plate appearances, in 2014 with the Padres and 2017 with the Chicago White Sox. “He was a pretty notable prospect,” Eppler said. “We still feel there’s some ability to resuscitate that.” Liriano could make the team as a fourth outfielder. …center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
