White Sox agree with “Cuban Ohtani” Oscar Colás for $2.7 million

The Chicago White Sox have agreed to sign Cuban prospect Oscar Colás for a $2.7 million deal, according to a report by journalist Jesse Sánchez of MLB.com.

In this way, Colás formalizes his arrival in organized baseball in the United States, after being cataloged as the “Cuban Ohtani” for having the ability to pitch and hit at a star level.

The 23-year-old comes from playing baseball in Japan, and his time in the minor leagues is expected to be relatively short due to his previous experience in professional baseball in other countries.

The Chicago team already has several Cuban stars on its major league roster: José Abreu, Luis Robert and Yoan Moncada.
