Rays Announce Leslie Anderson Signing

It's Cuban defector day here at MLBTR, as the Rays officially announced their signing of Leslie Anderson an hour after the Blue Jays made their Adeiny Hechavarria announcement.  Anderson's four-year, $3.75MM agreement was first reported on March 11th.

The press release notes Anderson's athleticism and ability to play all three outfield positions and first base.  When Anderson defected in September, his agent Jaime Torres drew a comparison to Alexei Ramirez.
