Rafael DePaula May Sign Soon

17-year-old righty Rafael DePaula may sign soon, reports MLBTR contributor Blake Bentley on the scene in the Dominican Republic.  Bentley sees a two-horse race between the Yankees and Mariners, with a bonus in the $1.5-2MM range possible.

DePaula threw a showcase yesterday, working in the 92-93 mph range.  You can view Bentley's video of that here.  ESPN's Jorge Arangure Jr. reported in January that DePaula's birth date was verified as April 1, 1992 by Junta Central, "the Dominican's official registrar."  Previously MLB had suspended DePaula for a year on the belief that he lied about his age.
