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.

Is there any information about Juan Yasser Serrano? The only info I found about him was that he had a poor track record and would have to sign a minor league deal in an old NBC sports posting when him and a few others were declared MLB free agents.
