International Signings: Royals, Rockies

MLB teams have been signing top international prospects since Monday, when a new class of players became available. Here are the latest signings from around MLB…

  • The Royals signed Venezuelan third baseman Samir Duenez for $425K, Ben Badler of Baseball America reports. The 16-year-old bats left-handed and has projectable power, Badler writes.
  • The Rockies signed Venezuelan left-hander Luis Guzman, Badler reports. The 16-year-old is a strike-thrower with a feel for secondary stuff, Badler adds.
