Mets Sign Venezuelan Shortstop Yoel Romero

The Mets have signed 16-year-old Venezuelan shortstop Yoel Romero for $300,000. At 6 feet, 175 pounds, Romero moves around well at shortstop with good agility and average arm strength that plays up because of his short arm stroke and quick release. More quick than fast, he’s a fringy runner with gap power from the right side and projection to grow into more strength. Romero trained with Jean Alayon.
