The Mets have signed Venezuelan catcher Jose Garcia. Bonus terms were not immediately available.
A 16-year-old from San Felipe, Garcia was considered one of the top catchers this year. He's a 5-foot-11, 180-pound switch-hitter with a line-drive swing and good catch-and-throw skills. A complete scouting report on Garcia is available only for Baseball America subscribers, who can read about other top Latin American prospects for July 2 this year as well.
