Source confirms report by @JeffPassan that the #Phillies have signed Cuban RHP Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez. Per Passan, 6 yrs, $50M plus.
I literally know nothing about him but that seems to be the going rate for high-end Cubans as of late.
I was just reading an article about Puig & Chapman. They mentioned other big time players as part of a very promising wave of Cuban players trying to head to the US. I can't remember if his name was in it but there was a pitcher mentioned in it who they said could be the next big thing & is close to MLB ready. I'm not sure if this was in reference to Gonzalez.
