Mariners Sign Dominican Catcher Onil Pena

The Mariners have signed Dominican catcher Onil Pena for $385,000.

Pena, 16, is a good athlete for a catcher at 6 feet, 180 pounds with a quick, compact righthanded swing. He has a strong arm and is relatively new to catching, so his receiving skills are still developing. He played in the Dominican Prospect League and trains with Aldo Marrero and Micalo Bermudez.
