A’s Sign No. 14 International Prospect Jesus Lopez

Nicaraguan shortstop Jesus Lopez, the No. 14 international prospect, has signed with the Athletics for $950,000.

Lopez, 16, is one of the best hitters in Latin America. He’s a switch-hitter with a sweet swing and an advanced offensive approach, although he doesn’t project as a true shortstop. He trains with Wilfredo Blanco.
