Top Mexican Prospect Heredia Signed

Early this morning the Pirates signed Mexico's top pitching prospect, Luis Heredia, for $2.6 million. They really wasted no time on this one as he just became eligible to be added to an MLB team yesterday. Only three days after signing Stetson Allie and Jameson Taillon, the signing obviously adds even more young talent to the minor league system.

Honestly if anyone has any clue how a 16-year-old pitcher is going to develop, more power to them. Heredia already throws in the low 90s and the Yankees, Blue Jays and other teams were interested him, so I guess he's a good prospect.

I'll probably post something later reacting to the draft and signings. For now suffice it to say this is good news.
