Diamondbacks Sign Cuban Outfielder Yasmany Tomas

According to Jesse Sanchez, the Arizona Diamondbacks have agreed to terms with Cuban slugger Yasmany Tomas.

The Tomas deal will include an opt-out after four years and is pending a physical.

Tomas, who turned 24 on Nov. 14, left Cuba last summer and trained six days a week for four months until the rules allowed him to begin working out on a baseball field in early September.

Tomas can play right field for the D-backs or move to left field if Arizona chooses to shift Mark Trumbo from left to right field. He’s a middle of the order hitter that could slot somewhere behind All-Star first baseman Paul Goldschmidt, the team’s no. 3 hitter.
The D-backs finished with a 64-98 mark last season, the worst record in baseball.
