Four sources confirmed that Guillermo Pimentel, one of the top 16-year-old prospects available for the July 2 international signing period, has been working out extensively at the Mariners academy in the Dominican Republic.
Texas had been widely linked to Pimentel a month ago, with nearly every source contacted saying at the time that Pimentel would sign for around $2 million with the Rangers. Now Pimentel’s destination is less clear, as the Yankees have also shown interest and the Mariners have been rumored for several months to have strong interest in the lefthanded-hitting oufielder.
Scouts say Pimentel, who is 6-foot-2, has a short swing, plus power and a good approach at the plate.
