Royals Agree To Sign No. 11 International Prospect Jeison Guzman

The Royals have agreed to sign 16-year-old Dominican shortstop Jeison Guzman, the No. 11 international prospect for July 2, for $1.5 million.

At 6 feet, 160 pounds, Guzman is a smart, fundamentally sound player who scouts project to stick at shortstop and potentially be an above-average defender. His lefthanded bat is trending up, showing a line-drive approach from the left side of the plate. Guzman trains with John Carmona and played in the Dominican Prospect League.
