Rockies Sign Jose Tovar

The Rockies have signed Venezuelan left-hander Jose Tovar, an international source told Ben Badler of Baseball America.  The 16-year-old will receive a $350K bonus in the deal.

Tovar, who is 6'2" and 180-pounds, pitched in the Dominican Prospect League despite being a native Venezuelan.  In 8.2 innings for Los Patriotas, Tovar had no earned runs, 13 Ks, and six walks.  

Earlier this week, Badler projected that Tovar would be the fifth highest-paid pitcher in this year's class of international free agents.
