The Diamondbacks signed Colombian catcher Oswaldo Garcia and Dominican shortstop Fernery Ozuna, as MLBTR noted earlier today. Here are some more noteworthy international signings:
- The Pirates announced that they signed 16-year-old Dominican Michael DeLaCruz. The outfielder obtained a $700K bonus, Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports (Twitter links). “He is a young player with ... tools that are still developing,” Pirates director of Latin American scouting Rene Gayo said. “He is also an instinctive and aggressive performer with a very strong opportunity to be a five-tool player.” If the name sounds familiar, it's because the Pirates recently signed Dominican third baseman Julio Delacruz for $700K.
- The Pirates are waiting to sign three more Dominican players for a combined total of $750K or so, Biertempfel adds.
- The Orioles signed Cuban outfielder Henry Urrutia to a minor league contract with a bonus of $779K, Ben Badler of Baseball America reports. The 25-year-old's bonus won't count against Baltimore's $2.9MM pool for the 2012-13 international signing period. Urrutia is an athletic switch-hitter who could begin his professional career at Double-A, according to Baseball America.
