Rangers sign another 16-year-old OF from Dominican
The Texas Rangers have signed their second 16-year-old
outfielder from the Dominican Republic in a matter of days, handing
out another big signing bonus, too.
Ronald Guzman got a 2012 contract Saturday with a signing bonus
of $3.45 million.
Texas announced Guzman’s signing three days after the Rangers
confirmed they had signed outfielder Nomar Mazara, another
16-year-old prospect from the Dominican Republic.
Mazara got a $5 million bonus.
Guzman and Mazara, both left-handed hitters, will report to the
Rangers’ Dominican complex in Boca Chica when they return home.
Both were in Texas this week.
The Rangers also promoted Cuban outfielder Leonys Martin from
Double-A Frisco to Triple-A Round Rock. The Rangers signed Martin
to a $15.5 million, five-year deal in May.
