Red Sox Agree To Terms With Cuban SS

The Red Sox have agreed to sign Cuban shortstop Jose Iglesias to a deal worth over $8MM, according to Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald. We heard that the Red Sox were close to signing the defensive phenom a week ago, but it looks like the agreement is complete, though an official announcement isn't expected until later in the month.

Iglesias, 19, has drawn comparisons to Ozzie Smith for his glove-work and while scouts don't love his hitting, he should bat will enough to become a major league regular, according to Kiley McDaniel of Baseball Prospectus.
