The Toronto Blue Jays have reportedly signed Cuban free-agent infield prospect Lourdes Gurriel Jr.
Multiple reports Friday said the team and Gurriel had agreed to a "multi-year deal."
The 23-year-old was declared a free agent by MLB in August.
Gurriel, the younger brother of Astros infielder Yulieski Gurriel, has a career .277 batting average over 1,098 career plate appearances in Cuba's Serie Nacional.
He batted .344 with a .407 on-base percentage in Cuba last season with a career-high 10 home runs and 53 RBIs in 59 games.
