The first time the Mets signed a 16-year old out of the Dominican Republic, it worked out okay, producing shortstop Jose Reyes. They announced that on Monday, they signed 16-year-old outfielder Jess Martnez, to a deal worth $1.4 million.
The Reyes signing cost them only $15,000, significantly more than the Martnez deal. It proves that the Dominican Republic is clearly being scouted more heavily and producing higher buck prospects. With both Martnez, and other Mets recent signee, Venezuelan pitcher Deolis Guerra unable to start playing professional baseball until they are 18-years old, they won't appear on the fantasy landscape for probably five years.
