According to Steve Melewski of MASN, the Orioles signed 16-year-old RHP Olelky Peralta out of the Dominican Republic for $325,000. This would be one of the highest bonuses ever given to a Dominican prospect for the Orioles.

Obviously, this is a terrific step in the right direction. Very excited to see this kid hopefully in the GCL soon!

If they like this guy that much then this is what we've been asking for. More of an international presence.

I always wonder about these guys that "Other teams didn't think he was eligible" Birth certificates elsewhere are so easily fudged. You can question that either way. If you believe the 97mph fastball. He's almost certainly not 15 years old. At the same time the kid could be 20 and tell everyone he's 16.
