Dejan Kovacevik is reporting that the Pirates have signed six international player. Looks like the Dominican Academy is starting to bear some fruit as all of these players are from the Dominican Republic.
For those of you without PG plus there are some interesting players in this mix though none are expected to be any of the big bonus babies. The players signed are:
Yunior Montero, 6' 4" RH pitcher - very projectable, good fastball movement
Christian Henriquez - 6' 1" LH pitcher - very polished
Miguel De Aza - 6' 0" LH OF -
Rodney Polonia - 5' 10" LF SS and son of Luis Polonia
Yunior Valdez - 6' 3" RH OF - athletic and toolsy
Melvin Rosario - 6' 2" LH pitcher - another projectable frame
These are just agreements as none of these players have been cleared to sign contracts yet. While waiting for some of our important draft prospects to sign I'm least glad to hear that we are getting some interesting international talet in the system.
