Cuban signee Iglesias to debut in Arizona Fall League

According to ESPN.com's Peter Gammons, the Red Sox will have Cuban shortstop Jose Iglesias make his U.S. pro debut in the Arizona Fall League for the Mesa Solar Sox. Iglesias signed a contract with Boston this summer for a reported $8.2 million over 4 years, a figure that includes a $6 million signing bonus. Iglesias' strength is in the field, where his slick fielding has drawn comparisons to Ozzie Smith.

Iglesias will join the four previously announced Sox heading for Mesa - catcher Luis Exposito, outfielder Ryan Kalish, and relief pitchers Chris Province and Dustin Richardson - as well as three more unnamed players, reported by Baseball America to be an infielder and two more pitchers. Greenville Drive hitting coach Billy McMillon will also fill that same role for the Solar Sox.
