Rangers Sign Venezuelan Shortstop Yonny Hernandez

Yonny Hernandez, a 16-year-old Venezuelan shortstop, has signed with the Rangers. An undersized switch-hitter at 5-foot-7, 160 pounds, Hernandez has a patient hitting approach, tracks pitches well and has a quick stroke with minimal power. He’s quick in the field and should stay in the middle of the infield. Hernandez trained with Ciro Barrios, whose son of the same name signed with the Rangers in May for $50,000.
