A's and Yoenis Cespedes Agree To Four Year Deal
Cespedes will be working under a Visa, and once that is received, the outfielder is free to work for the A's. Cespedes will bring power to a lineup that could use a big bat. The 26 year-old tied a Cuban single season record with 32 homeruns last season.
For several weeks, it was believed that the Miami Marlins would land Cespedes, but a deal never transpired and head coach Ozzie Guillen was quoted as saying it would be a gamble to sign the Cuban defector. Gamble or not, Cespedes is going to play in the major leagues next season.
