PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Philadelphia Phillies have signed free agent right-handed pitcher Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez, Senior Vice President & General Manager Ruben Amaro Jr. announced Friday.

The three-year, $12 million contract includes a vesting/club option for 2017, a signing bonus and performance bonuses.

Gonzalez, a 26-year-old native of Cuba, pitched in the 2009 and 2011 World Cup for the Cuban National Team.

“We are very pleased to have come to an agreement with Miguel,” said Amaro. “He is someone our scouts have followed for several years and in our most recent observations of him he showed tremendous stuff. We are hopeful he will pitch out of our starting rotation for 2014 and beyond.”

The Phillies say Gonzalez will report to spring training in Clearwater, FL.

Left-hander John Lannan has been moved to the 60-day disabled list.
