Indians Sign Two Venezuelan Prospects

The Indians have signed left-hander Edgar Pineda and outfielder Omar Sanchez, both from Venezuela, according to Baseball America's Ben Badler. Neither player's bonus is known at this time.

In a subscriber-only piece, Badler notes that the 16-year-old Pineda can touch the low-90's with his fastball even though he stands just 5-foot-7. Sanchez, also 16, is said to have a "flat, line-drive swing and has started to show more consistent contact with gap power."

Cleveland had previously signed Venezuelan outfielder Anthony Santander and Dominican shortstop Dorssys Paulino.
