« on: July 02, 2019, 09:03:55 pm »
Astros sign 13 international players today. The big signing is #14 ranked prospect SS Dauri Lorenzo.

“Dauri Lorenzo is an athletic and projectable 16-year-old switch-hitter,” said Roman Ocumarez, Astros assistant director of international scouting. “He has a smooth, compact swing with a great ability to hit and solid defense. We had the chance to see him several times, and he always stood out for his hitting ability. Lorenzo also has great makeup and attitude on and off the field. We are very happy to acquire him.”[/quote
