Jorge Arangure brings us some good news via Twitter:
Cuban catcher Adalberto Ibarra is in Boston today to take his physical to finalize deal with #redsox
The Red Sox' first big ticket international free agent signing this year, Ibarra has had difficulties making it to Boston due to visa issues. Now that he's in the country, though, he should take a few weeks to get up to speed before being assigned to a minor league team.
Ibarra is an offense-first catcher with a good arm, and could fill that elusive catcher of the future role that has caused so much angst in the Red Sox organization.
