Cuban pitcher Dalier Hinojosa signs with the Red Sox


The Red Sox have signed Cuban pitcher Dalier Hinojosa to a Minor League contract, reports Baseball America. Hinojosa was cleared as a free agent back in July after defecting from Cuba in February.

Baseball America expects the Red Sox to utilize the 27-year-old Hinojosa as a reliever. Their scouting report on the right-hander:

Hinojosa, 27, throws around 88-92 mph, with some reports that he has touched higher since leaving Cuba, albeit with inconsistent velocity. He throws a pitch that scouts describe as either a splitter or a changeup along with a slurvy breaking ball that, like many Cuban pitchers, he adds and subtracts from to vary the shape of the pitch.
