I'm assuming he signed at 17 and now at 19 throws 99.

But thats not what these guys are paid to do, nor what we are looking for them to do, right?

No, he signed this year during or near the end of the Dominican Instructional League.

According to Badler he was an under the radar guy. 6 months ago he was throwing 93 and getting $10K offers. He moved to DR and spent two months training. Improved his mechanics and got stronger. His fastball jumped to 97. Then just before his 18th birthday he hit 99.

Yesterday, the #Mets signed Venezuelan infielder Lewis Castillo.

His father is former major leaguer Jose Castillo, who tragically passed away in a car accident with Luis Valbuena last December.

Yoenis Cespedes’ little brother, Yoelkis Cespedes will be declared a free agent by March 18th, per Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com.

22 year old outfielder, said to have “loud tools” and an 80 grade arm. Potential five tool talent. Expect a showcase of some sort over the next few months.

He will be subject to IFA rules, so likely to sign after 7/2 when teams have their new pools.
