DOB = sept 24, 91 = 17 1/2 years old


09/24/1992 according to Scout.com and Rotoworld.


it's '91.....if he was born in '92 that would have made him 15 when he signed last july, which of course is impossible........a player has to be 16 to sign

if ya still don't believe me, check the BA handbook.......they have him correctly listed as a '91 birth year

MLB is currently investigating over 40 cases of suspected age fraud involving dominican prospects........the exposure of smiley gonzalez has really blown the roof off this thing and i suspect there are going to be bigger names then him that tumble......i think this report proves that it has been easier then we all think for prospects to lie about their age post 9/11

is ynoa on that list? i doubt it, but the bottom line is his current year of birth as per MLB is 1991

That is just weird some sites list his birthday as '92.
