3/3 Cubs reach agreement with Cuban pitcher
The Cubs have reached an agreement with Cuban right-handed pitching prospect Juan Yasser Serrano. However, the deal was not expected to be finalized for another month. Serrano, who defected from Cuba in April 2009, still needs to undergo a physical before he can join the Cubs. There also is additional paperwork that must be completed before the deal is finalized, a team official said Wednesday.
