Red Sox Sign Cuban Catcher Ibarra

The Red Sox signed Cuban catcher Adalberto Ibarra to a five-year Major League deal, according to Cubanballplayers.comPeter Abraham of the Boston Globe confirmed the signing with Ibarra's agent Edwin Mejia.  Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald says the deal guarantees $3MM, "with incentives that could bring the total to $4.3MM."  Silverman says Ibarra will report to the team's minor league complex before they decide where to assign him.

Ibarra, 22, played catcher, first base, second base, and third base in Cuba, but Cubanballplayers.com says the Sox view him as a backstop.  According to Silverman, he hasn't focused on catching until the last few years.
