    He bats lefthanded, so he could be a possible replacement for Nix.

    Not necessarily. I get the comps because of the raw nature but also at 24 Stubbs was in his 3rd season under the Reds control. This kid will be entering his 1st. Stubbs would have had 3 years to make changes that the Reds deemed fit, ability to adjust to the professional game, and time to mature in the minors. This kid will be thrown right into the frying pan with a really short window to make an impact.

    Keep in mind he's signining for less than a million dollars, so we wouldn't be investing much. Low risk, high reward.

    Yep. For $550K, even if he becomes a 5th outfielder he would be well worth it.

    Plus defender in CF projected to start in AA. This seems like it's going to happen.

    Looks like the Reds are going Cuban.

    remember, he couldn't exactly sign earlier as he was in Cuba.

    i agree that this is a good deal for the team. i love all the low risk (small amount of cash) with upside signings Walt has done recently. as others have pointed out if the guy spends any time in the bigs this is a good deal.

    Its questionable. He says publicly he doesn't, but his parents met here and love it here, and he's only makin ~3.3 million US a year over there. I'm sure Nippon Ham would love to have the posting bonus too.

    I like the Reds taking a risk on some of these Cuban players. We already landed the top pitching prospect to come from there since Livan Hernandez and getting a second player who was given a second chance could lure agents and players to gravitate toward the Reds first. I'd be all in.

    Walt and Bob have done one thing beyond well in their short time here and thats expand the pool in which the team searches for talent. No matter the results I say kudos to them for trying to find new and creative ways to find cheap, high-end talent that may payoff in big ways over the next decade.
    If you can't be a good example... then you'll just have to be a horrible warning...

    Nothing tastes as good as being fit feels...

    From C. Trent's twitter:

    Club official says #Reds are "close" to signing Cuban OF Felix Perez, but not celebrating until it's actually done.
