Rays Sign Leslie Anderson

The Rays signed Cuban first baseman/outfielder Leslie Anderson to a four-year, $3.75MM deal, tweets Jorge Ebro of El Nuevo HeraldESPN's Jorge Arangure Jr. wrote in February that Anderson auditioned for nine clubs, and quoted two scouts who came away unimpressed.  Morgan Campbell of the Toronto Star said half the teams in baseball attended, and called Anderson "a chiselled Adonis of a baseball prospect."  One scouting report on the 27-year-old can be found at the blog Cuban Ball Players.

Anderson defected in September, and in January his agent Jaime Torres compared him to Alexei Ramirez.
