Royals, Twins Sign Dominican Prospects

The Royals have added to what is already the game's best farm system, signing right-hander Igor Feliz for $225K according to the Dominican Prospect League. The 17-year-old is said to have a "fastball [that] works between 91-93 mph but has been clocked up to 95 mph recently" and "good feel for his off-speed pitches." There's a chance he'll be able to remain a starter down the road.

The Twins, meanwhile, have added 19-year-old infielder Darfi Ortiz for $30K. He stands out for his "hard-nose style of baseball and … above average defensive actions in the middle of the diamond." Ortiz hit .333 with a .489 OBP and 14 stolen bases in 104 DPL plate appearances.

A-Rod makes more money in one at-bat than Darfi Ortiz will this year.

Happy to see the Twins going after middle infielders. I don’t care where they get them from, just get them.

Based on that scouting report, please take all of the mean things I’ve said about Nick Punto the past few years, do a find & replace to swap “Nick Punto” with “Darfi Ortiz”, and toss them into the time machine to be used in 2016.
