As first reported by zoowithroy.com, the Phillies have come to an agreement with Cuban defector Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez ("Mio Gonzalez", see below the jump). The 26 year old pitcher's deal could be worth upwards of $59M, and his arrival in Philadelphia could come as soon as August. While this addition will do little to remedy this debacle of a season, it is kind of cool to have someone who escaped a country on the roster.
YES PLZ RT @emptyclassic: @zoowithroy can we please call him Mio Gonzalez?
