Yankees Sign Cuban Defector Juan Miranda

The Yankees signed another Cuban defector, this time a position player.  Juan Miranda, who is 23ish, signed for four years and $2MM.  A small price to pay if there's any decent chance he becomes an average regular.

Miranda plays first base and the outfield, presumably left.  There isn't much scouting info on him floating about; ESPN quoted a guy saying he can hit .280 with 20 HR eventually.  Let's see him do something in Double A first.

This shouldn't affect the Yanks' pursuit of a first baseman; Doug Mientkiewicz still appears to be on the radarThe A's could also sign Mientkiewicz.
