HAVANA (Reuters) - Cuban baseball officials have not entered talks with Major League Baseball and have no agreement to play an exhibition game next year, a Cuban spokesman said on Thursday after the Wall Street Journal reported that MLB was likely to play a game in Cuba in 2016.

"That may be their will, but we have not had any conversations. There is no agreement," said Antonio Diaz, spokesman for the National Baseball Directorate.
