San Francisco, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - The San Francisco Giants agreed to terms with Cuban outfielder Daniel Carbonell on Monday.

Carbonell, a 23-year-old currently living in Mexico, spent four seasons with Camaguey of the Cuban National Series, batting .287 with nine home runs and 70 RBI over 190 games.

He has experience playing all three outfield spots, but spent the bulk of his career to this point playing center field. Carbonell will report to Arizona once he has secured a work visa.
