Blue Jays Sign Dawel Lugo

The Blue Jays have signed Dominican shortstop Dawel Lugo, reports Ben Badler of Baseball America. The 16-year-old recieved a $1.3M signing bonus, the largest bonus given to a Latin American infielder this year.

Badler's subscriber-only scouting report describes Lugo as having "a solid swing, good bat speed and makes consistent contact with natural loft, showing the potential for plus power down the road." Some expect him to move off short down the line, likely to third base.
