Cuban shortstop Erisbel Arruebarrena officially reported to Dodgers Spring Training on Thursday. Along with comparing his playing style to Yasiel Puig, the 23-year-old confirmed that his last name is actually spelled with 12 (Arruebarrena) and not 13 (Arruebarruena) letters. See his Cactus League jersey below:

Arruebarrena apparently didn't feel the need to make the change on his WBC threads last year. 

The youngster now slips into a second-place tie with Al Alburquerque and Will Middlebrooks in the surname power rankings. Please update your lists accordingly.
