Red Sox sign outfielder Yoan Aybar
|07.08.13 at 9:21 am ET|
According to an industry source, the Red Sox have signed Dominican outfielder Yoan Aybar. Aybar, who turned 16 on July 3, is an athletic, projectable player who stands 6-foot-2, 165 pounds. The left-handed-hitting and throwing Aybar features a line-drive swing and power potential if he can add strength. He also shows above-average arm strength. As is often the case with international amateur free agents who sign at 16, Aybar’s skills are considered somewhat raw, but hint at potentially high upside.
