Cardinals Sign Dewin Perez

The Cardinals have signed Colombian left-hander Dewin Perez, according to a team press release.  Perez will receive a signing bonus of $450K, writes Ben Badler of Baseball America.

Perez is undersized at 5-foot-11 but scouts have seen the hurler sit in the high 80s with a good delivery and show a feel for his offspeed stuff, according to Badler (subscription req'd).  The youngster is a solid athlete and a former switch-hitting outfielder.
