Boston Red Sox sign Cuban pitcher Dalier Hinojosa


With the Boston Red Sox looking to close out the series against the Detroit Tigers tomorrow, they’ve announced a roster move that could add depth to their bullpen in the future.

According to Baseball America, the Boston Red Sox have agree’d to terms with 27 year old Cuban right handed pitcher Dalier Hinojosa. He was currently signed to a minor league contract jut for right now, but will more than receive a Spring Training invite to give him an opportunity to break the Opening Day roster.

Hinojosa was a starter over in Cuba but could be working out of the bullpen for the Red Sox. Alfredo Aceves recently left the team after being out righted from the 40 man roster so he could more than likely take his spot on the 40 man roster.

The 27 year old Cuban prospect was cleared to sign with teams July after defecting from Cuba in February. It was only a matter of time until someone picked him up. His pitching speed ranges anywhere between 88 miles per hour to 92 miles per hour.
