Nationals Sign Venezuelan Pitcher Tomas Alastre

Venezuelan 16-year-old righthander Tomas Alastre has signed with the Nationals. Alastre, who is 6-foot-4, 210 pounds, is a converted shortstop who’s athleticism has helped him transition to the mound, where he shows good arm strength up to 91 mph and some feel for a changeup. Given that he’s fairly new to pitching, his curveball and ability to throw strikes will need time to catch up. Alastre trained at Carlos Guillen’s academy.
