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.
