• 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.

    I can't see him getting 17mil a year (although stranger things have happened) , he had a nice second half last year, but offensively has not been consistent.

    I could see the AAV, sure. But that means you are giving Tulo an 8 year deal to get north of $200M. I wouldn't do it...too fragile a player. You gotta

    he may not get the length of a cano contract but he's going to get the aav even with the injury limited playing time. cano numbers are similar on offense.

    Whoa. I don't see that. Tulo has played two complete seasons in his career. He is too injury prone for that kind of contract. Cano comes to mind when
