Scouting Report
: Athletic left-handed hitting catcher with an excellent frame and a very strong arm. Came up through the Cuban ranks as an all-purpose infielder. Only converted to catching in 2009, so he is raw in the blocking and game-calling department. Possesses good hands and solid fundamentals. Offensively, Ibarra has solid swing mechanics.  Laces a lot of opposite field liners, meaning his swing is well-suited for Fenway.  Needs to learn English. Defected from Cuba following the 2009 season and became eligible to sign in the U.S. in April 2010. Boston invited him for an early tryout and signed him almost immediately, stating the belief that he has higher offensive potential than any catcher in the Red Sox system. The Sox beat out several other teams for his services.
