Yankees 2007 International Signings

The most frequent question I get is whether or not I have information on any new international signings by team X. Almost always, the answer is no. At this point in the season, however, a lot of teams have released their media guides, both in hard cover form and .pdf. I have access to the latter, and figured I’d throw up a list of all of a random team’s new signings. Will I do this with all 30 teams? Almost certainly not. Will I do it again? If someone asks me for a specific team, sure.

We’ll start with the Yankees. I’ll add salary information when I know it, but I don’t have any new information since posting my list of known international bonuses back in January. For convenience’s sake, and because it’s important to me to see who’s scouting where (for research as well as contact purposes), I’ll break the signings down by country (read: Dominican, Venezuela, and Other).

Dominicans: (Name, Position, Age)

Aris de la Cruz, INF, 17
Jairo Heredia, RHP, 17
Ariesky Lupaix, OF, 18
Jimmy Paredes, INF, 18
Yaquensi Romero, OF, 17
Damian Taveras, INF, 17, $200,000
Jose Toussen, INF, 17
Carlos Urena, OF, 17, $350,000

Venezuelans

Alberto Acosta, INF, 17
Francisco Arcia, C, 17
Juan Mercano, LHP, 16
Jesus Montero, C, 17, $1,600,000
Jose Pirela, SS, 17, $300,000
Yohanny Reyes, RHP, 18

Other

Rogelio Noris, OF, 17, Mazatlan, Mexico

Almost all of these guys will be playing on one of the Yankees’ two Dominican Summer League teams come mid-June.

Non-DR or Venezuela areas where the Yankees are most active: Mexico and Panama.

  1. I would love to see a list of Texas Rangers signees from the last year or two. I read somewhere that they signed something like 15 guys during this years signing period. But I can’t find names or bonus amounts anywhere. Appreciate your help.

  12. Will you people stop asking for other teams list? This is the Yankees list. No one cares about the rest 😀

    Anyway, what’s up with Noris? Did we really sign him or what? Because he is playing in the Venezuelan Summer League for the VSL Pirates.
