New, 135 comments

For those of you who have been waiting for the Cubs to sign a Cuban player, it's happened, according to Jorge Ebro:

Official: Cuban pitcher Gerardo Concepcion signed a multimillion dollar pact with the Chicago Cubs, a source confirmed to El Nuevo Herald.

I confess I know little about Concepcion, who is just 18 years old, although he was highly sought-after. This makes it clear that Theo Epstein & Co. are serious about building an organization with a strong international presence.

Discuss, etc.
