Viciedo signs with the ChiSox

There was some talk a little while back about how the Rangers should maybe go hard after 19 year old Cuban defector Dayan Viciedo, a third base prospect who was an international free agent.

Well, he's signed with the ChiSox...he got a major league deal and 4 years, $11 million.

Cuban defectors have generally been pretty shaky investments in the past, and this is a lot of money (not to mention a 40 man spot) for a 19 year old who, one would think, isn't going to be major league ready for a couple of years.
