Pirates Acquire AJ Burnett

The New York Yankees and Pittsburgh Pirates have agreed on a trade to send pitcher A.J. Burnett and $20 million to the Pirates in exchange for 25-year old minor league pitcher Diego Moreno and 20-year old outfield prospect Exicardo Cayones.  Not really much to write about Burnett that has not already been posted (links are in parentheses).

My question is about the outfielding prospect.  Has anybody except Opie known about Cayones before this week?
