Phillies Sign No. 29 International Prospect Daniel Brito

The Phillies have signed Venezuelan shortstop, the No. 29 international prospect for July 2, for $650,000.

Brito, 16, wasn’t invited to Major League Baseball’s national or international showcases, so he kept a relatively lower profile. He’s extremely skinny at 6-foot-1, 140 pounds but handles the bat well from the left side with good actions and shortstop and tools that could improve with strength. Brito trained with Alexis Salcedo and Steward Salazar.
