    Latest Cuban defector - might be a 4th outfielder or better right now.

    He is 27 (allegedly; have seen a couple different birth dates for him.) Five six, five sevenish. Late bloomer. This is a decent summary from this side of the border. I think that the Twins have better & younger players at AA at this point.

    Tough to go that blind on a guy who is that old. Typically you go blind on high school players. However, nothing wrong with a flyer on a guy when your ML CF is in shambles.

    Plays CF, 2B, 3B. Short. Doubles power. They need him now. Fond memories of Cesar Tovar come to mind. Unfortunately, I don't think the process of signing and playing in the majors will be that quick. He is really an option for 2015. So is Rosario.
