Report: Brewers ink Dominican shortstop

The Brewers have agreed to terms with 16-year-old Dominican shortstop Santo Aybar, according to a report on ESPN.com. 

The report, which cited Brewers Latin American Scouting Coordinator Fernando Arango as its source, said the signing would not be official until Aybar passed a Major League Baseball investigation into his age. That’s now standard operating procedure for international signings. <p/>

Baseball America rated Aybar the 18th-best Dominican prospect on July 1, the date before teams were free to sign Latin American players. The terms of his signing bonus were not immediately available.
