Yankees Interested In Venezuelan OF Antonio Arias

The New York Yankees are set to go ape crap crazy in this year's International signing period and have been linked to just about everyone in the market including Venezuelan outfielder Antonio Arias. Arias is currently 15 years old but will be 16 years old and eligible for signing when the new singing period opens up on July 2.

Arias is 6'2" and 170 lbs with plenty of time and room to grow physically. Arias is a good fielder who could stick in center field in the major leagues which makes him much more valuable. Arias is right handed and has not shown much power yet but with a mechanical fix or too he could absolutely begin to show some power.

No word on what kind of contract he would sign if he came to New York but as one of the youngest players in the field I wouldn't expect it to reach seven digits.
