Cuban defector Aroldis Chapman has been "granted provisional passive residency in the country of Andorra pending the finalization of the process," according to a statement from his agency.
Andorra is a small European country bordered by Spain and France with a population of around 84,000.
Chapman, a 21-year-old lefthander, defected from Cuba while traveling with the Cuban national team in the Netherlands at the World Port Tournament in July. Chapman, according to the statement, has sent Major League Baseball his residency materials, which MLB must still investigate before declaring him a free agent.
