Major League Baseball’s Department of Investigations has determined that Dominican shortstop Damian Arredondo, who signed with the Yankees on July 2, misrepresented his age and his identity, according to Sports Illustrated’s Melissa Segura.
Arredondo, who had presented himself as being 16 years old, is a switch-hitter with plus-plus speed and above-average tools in the field. Prospects who misrepresent their ages or their identities are subject to a one-year suspension from MLB. The Yankees won’t lose any money, Yankees vice president of baseball operations Mark Newman told SI.com, as the signing had been contingent on Arredondo passing his investigation.
