Welcome to the Blue, Diego Cartaya!

The Dodgers just made a splash on the first day of MLB's international signing period by inking 16-year old catcher and Venezuelan native Diego Cartaya. He is right-handed, stands 6'1" tall, is about 200 lbs. and is considered by many to be the best player available. Per a report by Jesse Sanchexz at, during a prospect showcase event in Columbia in January:
(The) teenager showed off his strong arm and good footwork during the workout. The right-handed hitter focused on driving the ball to center field and the opposite field instead trying to hit home runs during batting practice, which earned him praise from evaluators watching from the bleachers. Scouts like Cartaya's makeup, defense, hit tool and power potential.
