Noel Argüelles (Spanish pronunciation: [arˈɣweʎes]; born January 12, 1990) is a Cuban professional baseball pitcher, who is a free agent.

With shortstop José Iglesias, Argüelles defected from the Cuban junior national team while in Canada.[1] Argüelles signed a major league contract with the Royals in December 2009.[2]

After he signed, Argüelles developed shoulder pain that prevented him from pitching in 2010 and necessitated shoulder surgery in August 2010.[3] He debuted in the Royals organization for the Class-A Wilmington Blue Rocks in 2011. After struggling with the Northwest Arkansas Naturals of the Class AA Texas League in 2013, the Royals outrighted Argüelles off of their 40-man roster.[4][5]
