Does anyone have a scouting report on this kid or how much we signed him for?

Don said on twitter:

Andres Aguilar is a big framed kid, looks the part of power/speed combo.
under 6 ft, about 180 pounds. speed, quick hands give some hope to project.

He will start out in GCL.

I don't know much about him, but it's another signing, and another guy in the system. Certainly have no problem with it. It's good that people at least think he could project into something worthwhile.

I was skeptical about the Duquette hiring, but I'm loving how he's been pounding the international market instead of more aged veterans from free agency. Hopefully we can land Jorge Soler.
