Phillies Sign Carlos Tocci

WEDNESDAY: The Phillies signed Tocci for $759K, reports Baseball America's Ben Badler.

MONDAY: The Phillies are close to signing Venezuelan outfield prospect Carlos Tocci for a $750K bonus, according to Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com. The deal could be finalized this week, when Tocci turns 16 years old.

Tocci is an athletic player who has speed and a promising bat, according to Salisbury. He stands 6'2" and throws and bats right-handed. Baseball America's Ben Badler rated Tocci 25th among Latin American prospects earlier this summer, praising his running ability and line-drive swing. Tocci has the bat speed to play center field and also drew interest from the Rockies, according to Badler.

    “Tocci has the bat speed to play center field and also drew interest from the Rockies, according to Badler.”
    So does that mean that Adrian Gonzalez has the ability to play center for the Sox next year?

    I’d love to see stats on what % of 16 year old foreign signees ever make the majors.  Has to be very low.

      Yeah but when they make it is spectacular I am thinking Adrian Beltre or Hanley Ramirez stuff
