Postby GrimZeke007 » Mon Jul 03, 2006 12:28 pm

According to anonymous sources, the Yankees have landed the class of the 2006 International free agent class - Jesus Montero.

"He's 'the' top International free agent this year," Carlos Rios told PinstripesPlus.com on March 17th. "He can really hit and he plays a prime position."

The 16-year old Montero, widely considered a first-round talent by many International scouts, had been rumored to be seriously scouted by the New York Mets as well.

Jesus Montero - C - Yankees

Yankees signed catcher Jesus Montero to a minor league contract.
Montero, 16, was regarded as perhaps the top player eligible to be signed out of Latin America this year. To win the bidding, the Yankees gave him a bonus in the $2 million-$2.2 million range. He's reported to have terrific power potential, but he probably won't be able to stay behind a plate. First base could be his future home. Jul. 3 - 1:47 pm et
