So which is it? Arruebarruena or Arruebarrena? I asked the Dodgers when I started seeing it spelled Arruebarrena. The response yesterday was “Arruebarruena.” but when the Dodgers first signed Erisbel, you kept seeing Arruebarruena everywhere.
Jesus Padilla saw the Dodgers response to me so he twitted this picture

Once Erisbel arrived at Camelback Ranch, the Dodgers announced him as Erisbel Arruebarrena
Either way, Welcome Erisbel! I see that both in Cuba and with the Dodgers you are wearing Manny Mota’s number. Great choice!
