Yankees Signed Three More International Players

The New York Yankees big day on the International market continues as they have officially signed three more IFA's since the last post got put up on the blog a few hours ago. The Yankees have signed Korean shortstop Hyo-Jun Park. Park is a little older than most prospects that will be signed this week at 18 years old but it a High School senior that projects to stick at shortstop.

New York also signed the second best prospect available Dominican outfielder Juan De Leon. De Leon is 16 years old and possesses the best bat speed in this year's class to go with a strong arm and above average speed. De Leon may not stick in center field but should be a solid corner outfielder, worst case scenario.

Finally the Yankees signed Venezuelan catcher Miguel Flames. Flames is a former third baseman who has a ton of raw power and obviously a strong throwing arm. Flames is raw as far as catchers are concerned and may have to move to first base eventually due to his size, see Jesus Montero and Gary Sanchez.
