Indians Sign Anthony Santander

The Indians have signed Venezuelan outfielder Anthony Santander for a bonus of $385K, according to Baseball America's Ben Badler.

Badler writes that the 16-year-old Santander is a switch-hitter who stands 6'2" tall and has an athletic 185-pound frame. He's trimmed nearly a full second off his 60-yard dash, with one scout clocking him at 6.65 seconds recently. He projects to play left field due to a somewhat weak throwing arm, but makes good contact with average power.

Baseball America had projected Santander to receive the 29th-largest bonus of any international signing. The Indians also signed Dorssys Paulino for $1.1MM earlier today.
