Angels Sign No. 27 International Prospect Ricardo Sanchez

Venezuelan lefthander Ricardo Sanchez, the No. 27 international prospect for July 2, has signed with the Angels.

Sanchez, 16, was the winning-pitcher of the gold-medal game in Venezuela’s 15U World Championship victory over Cuba last August in Mexico. He can run his fastball up to 91 mph with feel for his curveball, although his control has been erratic. Sanchez trains with Henderson Martinez.
