Dominican third baseman Nelson Gomez, the No. 6 international prospect for July 2, has signed with the Yankees for $2.25 million.
Gomez, a 16-year-old righthanded hitter, generates some of the best raw power in the class from his strong 6-foot-2, 210-pound frame. He should start out at third base, though some scouts wonder whether he will end up at first base. Gomez trained with Victor Baez and played in the Dominican Prospect League, with an appearance at Wrigley Field last August to play in the Under Armour All-America game.
