Dominican shortstop Amed Rosario has signed with the Mets for $1.75 million.
Rosario, the No. 11 international prospect for July 2, is a 16-year-old righthanded hitter with plenty of room to fill out his lanky, 6-foot-3, 170-pound frame. Some teams project Rosario as a shortstop with offensive upside, though others think he may outgrow the position. Rosario grew up as a teammate with Rangers outfielder Nomar Mazara in La Javilla youth league. He trained at the academy of the president of the league, John Carmona.
