The Philadelphia Phillies have officially signed Cuban pitcher Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez to a three year, $12 million deal. The signing was announced this afternoon during their win over the Chicago Cubs.
Gonzalez, 26, is a Cuban defectee who has a mid to upper 90's fastball. Gonzalez could replace Roy Halladay or Kyle Kendrick in the Phillies' rotation if either of those pitchers is not re-signed in the offseason.
A spot on the Phillies' 40-man roster has already been freed up for Gonzalez. The team has transferred John Lannan to the 60-day disabled list, which frees up a spot on the 40-man roster for Gonzalez.
