According to Ben Badler of Baseball America, the New York Yankees signed Cuban outfielder Adonis Garcia. Marc Carig of the Star-Ledger reports that the contract is a minor league deal worth $400K over one year. As Carig notes, the contracts is worth significantly less than a previous report back in March that had Garcia "getting offered a six-year, $16 million deal."
Badler writes that Garcia spent his winter playing in Venezuela, where he was primarily a left-fielder.

"Garcia, a 26-year-old righthanded hitter, is only 5-foot-7, 180 pounds and doesn't have any standout tools, so it's hard for scouts to see him fitting in as a big league regular. However, he has a strong track record of hitting in Cuba's top league, Serie Nacional. His bat is advanced enough that he figures to reach Double-A or Triple-A quickly."
