According to ESPN, the Giants have agreed to terms with 16-year old Dominican outfielder Rafael Rodriguez.
Comment: To many, he is a duplicate of Vladimir Guerrero because of his size and power with the bat. Rodriguez can work the entire outfield and drive the ball anywhere. He has reportedly accepted an offer from the San Francisco Giants worth $2.5 million.
Couple this with Keith Law's comment,
Kenny (Sacramento): After the last 2 drafts, which appeared to be solid, where would you rank the Giants farm system?
Keith Law: Assuming they get these guys signed, which I assume they will, they're probably top five.
It seems amazing to me that the Giants, which had a very weak farm system just a few years ago, have brought their system back up this quickly.
Does anybody know anything more about Rafael Rodriguez?
