Cardinals Sign Dominican Prospect Serrano

The Cardinals signed Dominican right-hander Andres Serrano for $750K, Ben Badler of Baseball America reports. The agreement, which dates back to October, is still pending an MLB investigation into the prospect’s age and identity.

The 17-year-old Serrano stands 6’3” and has a fastball that clocks in from 90-95 mph. He also has a curveball and change-up, Badler reports. The bonus would be the highest of 2011 for a pitcher from the Dominican, assuming MLB approves the deal.

In a few months we’ll find out he’s actually 21, named Escobardo Amezega

Unless his real name is Tanaka, all the major league jokes will be ruined :(

The Dominican Republic produces very good players. Cardinal fans, this could be a great signing. Right now, its to early to tell but it sounds like he’s got good stuff. I like it

Obviously not a Carlos Martinez-type. But, that’s a lot of money, and I have faith in the Cards front office. Maybe another power arm in the late innings or a mid-ro starter. Always excited when a new prospect signs. Especially from the Dom. Rep.

I was going to ask if he can hit a curveball but see I’m way too late for that

Nothing like a culturally/racially insensitive remark to start your lunchbreak!
