CLEVELAND (92.3 The Fan) – The Indians are always looking to the future, and today that became official again as the team came to terms with 16-year-old Dominican Hector Caro.
MLB Trade Rumors and Baseball America reports that the Tribe and Caro came to terms on a deal that is worth $1.1 mil. He’s a corner outfielder, and hits from the right side.
Here’s more on Caro from Baseball America:
Cleveland appears to have strayed significantly from the industry consensus in its evaluation of Caro, a player several teams did not consider to be one of the top prospects in Latin America and was not ranked among the Top 20 international prospects for July 2. While Caro’s bonus is surprising based on his scouting reports from several organizations, sources had told Baseball America before July 2 that the Indians were expected to give him a seven-figure bonus.
