Estavan Florial is a Dominican-Haitian professional baseball outfielder for the New York Yankees of Major League Baseball (MLB). He made his MLB debut in 2020. Florial holds dual-citizenship with Haiti due to his mother being born there.
In the first couple of years with the Yankees organization, they mistakenly listed him as being born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, which would have made him a forerunner to become the first Haitian-born Major League player.
Estevan was first drafted by the Yankees in 2014 as Haniel d’Oleo. Unfortunately, the contract was annulled after he was unable to submit a birth document and he re-signed with the Yankees in 2015 as Estevan Florial.
Estavan Florial made his Major League Baseball debut with the Yankees in 2020.
For three different clubs in 2016, he hit a combined.227 with eight homers and 30 RBI, playing in all of their games in a total of 67.
