Reds sign Cuban pitcher Raicel Iglesias to seven-year deal
A week ago, it was reported that Iglesias and the Reds were close to making a deal, but the negotiations didn't materialize until now.
Iglesias defected from Cuba in November 2013 and was one of four Cuban players that MLB granted an exception to sign during the league's closed period, before the rules for Cuban players change on July 2. The new rules will require players to be 23 and have played five seasons, while Iglesias has only played three.
