Adeiny Hechevarria Free to Sign, Yankees Interested

style="text-align: justify;">According to Jorge Arangure of ESPN, Cuban shortstop Adeiny Hechevarria has been “unblocked” by the Office of Foreign Assets Control, and is now free to sign with any major league team.

The consensus right now is that the 19-year-old could earn as much as $10 million, which would be more than the $8.2 million the Red Sox recently paid Jose Iglesias this winter.

A number of teams have expressed interest in signing Hechevarria, but Arangure identifies the Yankees and the Cubs as teams with heavy interest in him.

Here is a scouting report on Hechevarria comparing him to Iglesias:
