The Cardinals have signed Erick Hurtado, a 17-year-old lefthander from the Dominican Republic. Bonus terms were not immediately available.
Hurtado, who is from Santo Domingo, is 6-foot-3, 200 pounds and threw around 86-88 mph as July 2 approached last year, but more recently he's pitched in the high-80s and touched 90-91 mph. He's still raw as a pitcher but he shows some feel to spin a curveball and mixes in a changeup as well. Hurtado worked out at La Academia and pitched some in the International Prospect League. His trainer was a man known as Lucas.
