A mature prospect who'll be 28 (or so) later this year, Cuban Yadil Mujica is a contact hitter with plus speed, good range and a plus arm from shortstop. In his last year in Cuba, he hit .358/.432/.440, an average good enough for twelfth-best in the league (modern Cuban baseball is hitter-friendly, which might explain why so few Cuban pitchers stick in MLB.)
In the Yanks' AA system last year, Mujica scraped out a commendable .294/.273/.567 line, stole a few bases and knocked a home run. That's awfully good for a first turn in US pro ball, of course, but age isn not on his side, so he'll need to do a bit better in 2012 if he's going to have a future in MLB.
