Marlins add seven more international signings

NEW YORK — The Marlins remain extremely active on the international signing front.

Add seven more 16-year-old standouts to an already impressive list. All are from the Dominican Republic, and the list features right-hander Luis Mojica, lefties Gabriel Baez and Julio Frias, shortstops Samuel Castro and Ronald Reynoso, plus outfielders Juan Borges and Sleyter Soto.

This year, the organization has tripled its budget to signing international prospects. The signing period for 16-year-olds started on July 2.

On the first day, the organization believes it struck big by reaching deals with Venezuelan outfielder Anderson Castro, Venezuelan shortstop Andres Villalobo and Dominican Republic outfielder Christian Capellan.

Castro, especially, has been promising. He’s considered a five-tool talent with immense power.
