Cardinals Sign Dominican Righthander Sandy Alcantara

The Cardinals have signed Dominican righthander Sandy Alcantara for $125,000.

Alcantara is 17, so he would have made been eligible to sign during the previous signing period had he been registered with Major League Baseball. He’s an extremely lanky 6-foot-4, 165 pounds with a fastball that touches the low-90s and a changeup that’s more advanced than his curveball right now. Alcantara trains with Felix Liriano.
