The White Sox have agreed to sign Dominican outfielder Franklin Reyes, the No. 27 international prospect for July 2. His bonus will be $1.5 million.
Reyes, 16, is a tall, physical corner outfielder at 6-foot-3, 235 pounds. He stands out for his raw power and arm strength, which are both plus tools, though he’s still learning to translate his righthanded power from batting practice into the game. Reyes trains with Basilio Vizcaino, known as “Cachaza,” and played in the Dominican Prospect League.
