    Yankees Sign Luis Torrens

    http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2012/0...edium=facebook

    The Yankees have signed Venezuelan catcher Luis Torrens for $1.3MM, writes Ben Badler of Baseball America. 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. The Yankees have a connection with Torrens as he trained with the club's international scouting director Carlos Rios.

    The Dominican Prospect League announced that the Yankees have signed Dominican shortstop Yancarlos Baez for $650K, writes Ben Badler of Baseball America. The 16-year-old is an athletic switch-hitter with good bat speed but was not ranked in BA's top 20.

    oops I apologize it looks like there was an international thread already that included these guys. It just came up on my feed now on the Yankee FB page.

    You can merge, move, lock, whatever. Sorry for the old news. The time on the news is only from an hour ago so I thought it was new.

    Re: Yankees Sign Luis Torrens

    how can you call a 16 year old a "former shortstsop". I'm a former shortstop too...I played a few games there in 3rd grade I think. I'm also a former zygote, but I don't advertise it.
