Giants Sign Daniel Carbonell; Cuban OF Prospect


Hey All,

According the MLBTR...

quote:

The Giants have signed Cuban outfielder Daniel Carbonell to a Major League contract, the club announced. Carbonell will earn a guaranteed $3.5MM in the four-year deal, MLB.com’s Jesse Sanchez reports, and the 23-year-old outfielder can earn another $3.5MM in bonuses. Because he signed before July 2, Carbonell’s bonus will not count against San Francisco’s international draft pool. Carbonell is represented by the Culture 39 agency.

Carbonell was rumored to be choosing between five suitors who were offering contracts of five-to-seven years in length, though he managed to find his desired four-year deal in taking the Giants’ offer. The 6’3″, 196-pound Carbonell is now on the Giants’ 40-man roster and he’ll report to camp in Arizona once he obtains his work visa, the team said.

In his most recent season for Camaguey, Carbonell hit .298/.369/.449 with five homers, 40 runs scored and 28 steals (in 29 attempts) over 223 PA. Baseball America’s Ben Badler has the scouting breakdown on Carbonell, with talent evaluators praising his speed and defensive potential, though his hitting is very raw.



Let's see...old for a prospect at 23; check...speed; check...defensive skills; check...can't hit; check. Just like pretty much all Giants OF farm hands.

Meh.

That was my exact thought! I am not looking for another toolsy prospect who can't hit. Rather have a guy lacking the tools, but has the bat. Juan Perezs are great if you are a top 5 offense.

Hey mb,

I think a guy like Perez, who can play every OF position, some very well, and who has a cannon for an arm, is very desirable...as long as the club is carrying a 5 man bench AND there's another OF on the bench who can hit a bit, and for power. Tyler Colvin, for example, matched with Perez would be just fine.

The issue with Juan Perez is when he's combined on the bench with Juan Perez Senior, Gregor Blanco. Especially with the Giants carrying their self-imposed offensive dead weight, Ehire Adrianza.

I really kind of don't get this signing.
