Braves Sign Cuban Outfielder Yasser Gomez

The Braves made a big plunge into the international market today when they signed Cuban outfielder Yasser Gomez, who had defected from Cuba in late 2008. According to MLB Trade Rumors, Gomez will not receive a big bonus, but is considered by some to be very close to the major leagues.

He is apparently a player who hits for a high average and has good speed. Because of that combination the Braves may look at him as a future leadoff hitter. He is older, at 30 years old, so he should be a very polished player. The Braves will likely stick him in the high minors.
