Mets Sign Venezuelan Righthander Jhoander Chourio

The Mets have signed 16-year-old Venezuelan righthander Jhoander Chourio for $130,000. Chourio who packs good stuff for his age and excellent athleticism into a smaller 5-foot-10, 175-pound build. He has touched 92 mph and shows feel for a hard curveball in the mid-70s that could evolve into an out pitch for him, with feel for a changeup as well. He trained with Jorge Ayude.
