• Yanks sign Luis Torrens

    Via MLBTR and Ben Badler:

    The Yankees have signed Venezuelan catcher Luis Torrens for $1.3MM, writes Ben Badler of Baseball America [EDIT: subscription required, sorry]. Torrens is ranked as the second-best international prospect in this July 2nd class.

    The 16-year-old is a former shortstop and third baseman who converted to catcher in February. Staying behind the plate would obviously enhance Torrens’ value but Badler writes that teams have been drawn to him for his bat.

    Yanks’ catcher prospect ranks get a bit deeper now.

    no, consideration is about whether a contract was formed to begin with.
