Dominican outfielder Christian Capellan officially signed with the Marlins today for $500,000. Capellan is a 16-year-old with a physical frame (6-foot-4, 200 pounds) and good sock for his age in his righthanded bat, which he will get to with more frequency if he can improve his breaking ball recognition. He’s a corner outfielder who should have the arm strength to play right field. Capellan played in the International Prospect League and trained with Edgar Mercedes.
