Phillies Sign Domingo Santana
The Phils’ international scouting department signed 16-year-old Domingo Santana from the Dominican Republic. Santana, a 6-foot-5 outfielder with a strong throwing arm, received a $300,000 signing bonus. He had also been pursued by the Yankees.
A 6’5″ 16-year-old from the D.R.
Color me surprised, yet skeptical. Cross your fingers and hope he didn’t lie about his age, like everyone else seems to do.
