Astros Sign No. 19 International Prospect Miguel Angel Sierra

Venezuelan shortstop Miguel Angel Sierra, the No. 19 international prospect for July 2, has signed with the Astros.

Sierra is 16 but has instincts and fundamentals well beyond his years. A righthanded hitter, Sierra is 6 feet, 160 pounds and projects to stick at shortstop, with steady tools that play up in games because of his high baseball IQ. He trained with Gustavo Salazar.
