The Cubs have signed 16-year-old Dominican third baseman Tony Rijo for $100,000. He’s 6-foot-1, 175 pounds and is a righthanded hitter with quick hands, a line-drive stroke and occasional power. His offense is ahead of his defense, where he has an average arm and projects as either a third baseman or a corner outfielder. Rijo trained with Jonathan Rosario (who goes by “Tejano”) and played in the International Prospect League.
