Fun question! I wasn't familiar with the last two names so I had to look them up.

Does it have to do with that they are all from countries that have few (if any) other MLB players?

That's it: Each are the sole player born in their countries to have played in the majors. Luzardo - Peru ; Mastny- Indonesia ; Bronkey - Afghanistan.

There is also Dovydas Neverauskas from Lithunania

I believe the next few are the sole player from 'where they were born':

Tony Solaita - American Samoa
Brian Lesher- Belgium
Chito Martinez- Belize
Robin Jennings - Singapore

Victor Cole - Russia (1992) - there were a few way back, but he is the sole modern player born there.
HOFer Bert Blyleven was the only modern player from the Netherlands.

Special Recognition goes to Isaiah Campbell, who pitched for the Mariners this past season. The only previous MLB player born in Portugal was Frank Thompson, who did so in 1875!

...and Finally, Ed Porray, who played in 1914 and was born at sea.
