Padres Sign Edwin Moreno

The Padres have signed 17-year-old Dominican outfielder Edwin Moreno, reports Baseball America's Ben Badler.  The contract is worth $500K.

Moreno was described as a "left-handed outfielder with pop and a strong body" by Blake Bentley on his list of the top 10 Dominican prospects leading up to the opening of the international signing deadline last July 2.  Moreno wasn't signed, however, due to failing a drug test administered to 40 prospects who registered with Major League Baseball last May.  As Badler notes, Moreno won't face a 50-game suspension since he wasn't signed to a contract when he failed his test.
