He was on the 2001 Cuban national team, and defected to the Dominican Republic in early 2004. He has since become a Dominican citizen. Although listed as being born in 1983, it has frequently been claimed that he may have been born two years earlier.

Miranda is a left-handed first baseman who hits with some power. He is also able to play in the outfield.

The 5-foot-11 Miranda, who played with ex-Yankee pitcher José Contreras, batted .303 with 27 homers for Pinar Del Rio in Cuba's Serie Nacional from 2002 to 2004.[1]

He signed a four year contract with the Yankees worth $2 million on December 12, 2006.[1][2]
