The Mariners have signed Brazilian lefthander Luiz Gohara, the No. 7 international prospect for July 2.
Gohara, who turned 16 on July 31, is 6-foot-3, 220 pounds and some teams felt he was the top pitching prospect available in this year's international signing class. Gohara throws a fastball that has touched 94 mph along with a quality slider. He has represented Brazil at multiple international tournaments, including one this month in Crystal Lake, Illinois. Baseball America subscribers can access a complete scouting report on Gohara.
