ESPN: Outfielder-first baseman signs with Yankees
by SG

The New York Yankees signed Cuban prospect Juan Miranda to a four-year contract worth $2 million, the player told

The deal, which includes a signing bonus of $500,000, is a major league contract and requires the Yankees to place the outfielder-first baseman on their 40-man roster.

The signing was confirmed by a Yankees official who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

I've never heard of Miranda, so I can't give you much information about him besides the fact that he's 23 years old in Cuban years. I'll scour the net for more information. At the very least he fills a position of need.

Here are Miranda's career stats in the Cuban league.

AB: 1138
H: 343
2B: 70
3B: 14
HR: 57
RBI: 205
BB: 197
K: 242
AVG: .301
OBP: .404
SLG: .538
