The Los Angeles Dodgers continue to make noise, and this time it comes through a signing of a Latin prospect. Cuban Yasiel Puig, an outfielder considered by scouts as a five-tool player, is close to signing a seven-year, $42 million deal. Puig, who defected from Cuba and established residency in Mexico, is just 21 years old and is viewed as a luminous spark on the field defensively and offensively.
"Puig's contract with the Dodgers should be completed by Friday. The young man could play in the major leagues this year, maybe in time to help with the race for the playoffs or the World Series," a source told ESPNDeportesLosAngeles.com.
