Cuban outfielder Daniel Carbonell has agreed to a four-year, $3.5 million contract with the Giants.
Carbonell is 23 years old and defected from Cuba in October. Previous reports had him looking for a four-year deal instead of the longer contracts various teams were offering, so it looks like Carbonell got his wish.
A switch-hitter with very good speed and what has so far at least been a modest bat, he could potentially make relatively quick work of the minor leagues and become an option for the Giants in 2015.
