(CBS) The White Sox will officially announce the signing of Cuban slugger Jose Abreu on Tuesday at U.S. Cellular Field.

Reports of a six-year, $68 million deal – the largest deal for an international player in baseball’s history – first leaked on Oct. 17, but the signing was pending a physical.

The 26-year-old first baseman defected from Cuba in August.

Abreu led Cuba’s Serie Nacional in 2010-11 with a .453 batting average and, in 66 games, had 33 home runs and 93 RBIs.

The following season, he added a .394 average, 35 home runs and 99 RBIs.
