Cubs Sign Dominican Shortstop Yeiler Peguero

The Cubs have signed 16-year-old Dominican shortstop Yeiler Peguero for $250,000. At 5-foot-10, 155 pounds, Peguero is an above-average runner with an average arm and should be able to stay in the middle of the infield. He’s a switch-hitter with a line-drive approach. Like lefthander Wander Cabrera, who signed with the Cubs earlier today for $250,000, Peguero played in the International Prospect League. Peguero trained with Juan Herrera, who is known as “Mon.”
