The Mets have signed Venezuelan catcher Jose Garcia, according to Ben Badler of Baseball America. Exact bonus terms have not been made available, but Badler tweets that the backstop got "sandwich-round type money", less than $1MM.
Garcia has received high praise for his catching intangibles and level, line-drive swing. The 16-year-old is a switch hitter with below-average power, though some scouts think that his power could improve somewhat. The Mets have been tied to Garcia for some time.
