I don't know anything about José "Don't call me Nardi" Contreras, but Cuban pitchers in the past have been somewhat overrated. Sure, the Hernández brothers have decent careers. But for every one of them, there are other Cuban emigrés like René Arocha who was a flop.

Most Cuban pitchers are way overworked,and flame out early.The Cuban National Team treats their pitchers hard.
