Red Sox sign Cuban pitcher Dalier Hinojosa

Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

The Red Sox have signed Cuban pitcher Dalier Hinojosa to a minor league deal.

The Red Sox may have come up short in their pursuit of first baseman Jose Dariel Abreu, but they're not coming away empty-handed in the international free agent market.

There's no word on what sort of contract we're looking at here, but his profie--a 27-year-old quite likely destined for a relief role--is not the sort you'd expect to see signing for huge money, particularly as this is a minor league signing. His performance in the Cuban Leagues was solid, and he does have the requisite perfect games in international play, coming against Sri Lanka (7 innings) and Hong Kong (5 innings) back in 2010.

He doesn't seem like a star in the making, at least not as a starter, but he's an interesting name coming into a team with serious needs in the bullpen.
