Rangers To Sign Nomar Mazara

The Rangers have reached agreement on a deal with Dominican outfielder Nomar Mazara for more than $5MM, a source told of Enrique Rojas of ESPNDeportes.com.  The deal would top the previous watermark set by Athletics pitcher Michael Ynoa, who signed for $4.25MM in 2008.

Mazara, 16, stands at 6-foot-5 and hits for power from the left side.  Rojas writes that he is considered to be the best power-hitting prospect out of Latin America since Wily Mo Pena and Miguel Cabrera.

The Blue Jays, Red Sox, and Athletics also showed interest in the 16-year-old, the source said.  Yesterday, Ben Badler of Baseball America (via Twitter) said that it was difficult to gauge what kind of bonus the outfielder might command.
