 MIAMI (AP) - A lawsuit seeking $12 million from Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig says he and his mother lied to Cuban authorities about a plan to smuggle the player out of the country.
The suit filed in Miami by Miguel Angel Corbacho Daudinot lists Puig and his mother Maritza Valdes Gonzalez as defendants. Corbacho Daudinot is serving a seven-year sentence of ``prolonged detention and torture,'' which he alleges was caused by Puig and Gonzalez saying he was trying to hatch a plan to smuggle Puig out of Cuba.
Corbacho Daudinot was convicted in 2010.
Puig attempted to defect several times before signing with the Dodgers last year. The $12 million Corbacho Daudinot seeks is equal to the signing bonus Puig received in his $42 million, seven-year deal.
