The Indians have signed Dominican shortstop Dorssys Paulino for $1.1 million.
Paulino, a 16-year-old righthanded hitter, is the son of former big league lefthander Jesus Sanchez, who pitched for the Marlins, Cubs, Rockies and Reds from 1998-2004. Paulino, who is from Bani and trains at La Academia, is 5-foot-11, 175 pounds and has one of the better bats among infielders in this year's July 2 class, though he might end up at second or third base because of his body type.
Baseball America subscribers have access to a complete scouting report on Paulino and other top Latin American prospects who are eligible to sign starting today with the opening of the international signing period.
