Via MLBTR, the Yankees have signed 17-year-old Venezuelan catcher Rainiero Coa. A former shortstop/first baseman, he moved behind the plate and apparently his defense and arm are top notch, which is why the Yanks signed him. You can read more about him here. I’m assuming Coa will spend the summer in the Yanks’ Dominican complex, and if he’s actually a prospect, he’ll come to the States next season.
