Phillies | Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez signed

The Philadelphia Phillies have officially signed Cuban P Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez to a three-year contract worth $12 million. The deal includes an option for the 2017 season, a signing bonus and performance bonuses. Gonzalez had agreed to sign with the team last month and was expected to get a six-year contract worth $48 million but the deal had to be reworked because of injury concerns. He will report to the team's spring training complex in Clearwater, Fla. "He's going to go to the Florida Instructional League this year," general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said. "We'll find out once he starts competing, but I hope he slides into the rotation for 2014. ... Great stuff, we'll see how it translates at the major-league level."
