Orioles Sign Hector Veloz

The Orioles have signed Dominican third baseman Hector Veloz, writes Ben Badler of Baseball America.  The O's director of international scouting, David Stockstill, confirmed to Dan Connolly of The Baltimore Sun that the club has reached agreement on a deal with the 16-year-old.

Veloz reportedly received $300K, which would be a franchise record signing bonus for a Dominican amateur.  Badler writes that the prospect has shown plus raw power from the right side, though his hitting in games has been spotty.  For Veloz's deal to become official, he will have to pass a drug test.  The youngster tested positive for an anabolic steroid in May.
