The Phillies have signed Venezuelan center fielder Carlos Tocci for $759,000, one of the highest bonuses the organization has ever given an international amateur free agent.
Tocci, a righthanded hitter who turned 16 yesterday, has an extremely skinny build at around 6-foot-2, 150 pounds and stands out for his plus-plus speed and baseball instincts. Tocci's complete scouting report is available to Baseball America subscribers, who can also read scouting reports on other top international players who became free agents this summer.
