MLB.com’s Jesse Sanchez reports that¬†Cuban infield prospect Roberto Baldoquin has passed his physical and officially signed with the Angels. The two sides initially agreed to a deal with an $8 million signing bonus in early November.

Baldoquin, 20, is expected to start the season in the minor leagues for the Angels. The club views him as a shortstop and as such, Baldoquin could take over at the position when Erick Aybar’s contract expires after the 2016 season.
