Padres To Sign Mayky Perez

By Steve Adams [July 5 at 7:59am CST]

MLB.com's Jesse Sanchez tweets that the Padres have agreed to terms with MLB.com's No. 9 international prospect, Dominican right-hander Mayky Perez, on a $635K signing bonus. Perez ranked 19th on the Top 30 list compiled by Ben Badler of Baseball America (subscription required).

The 16-year-old can throw in the mid-90s and also features a slider and changeup, according to MLB.com's scouting report. Scouts praise his mechanics and loose arm action, but questions over his ability to repeat his delivery lead some to believe he could end up in the bullpen. Badler had Perez's fastball at 87-92 mph, noting that some scouts have wondered why he hasn't added velocity since last summer when he was still in that range.

Sanchez's tweet also reports that the Padres agreed to sign Dominican outfielder Luis Asuncion for a $350K signing bonus. Asuncion didn't crack the Top 30 for either MLB.com or Baseball America, but Badler listed him as a "prospect to watch." According to Badler's report he stands out for his size and raw power but is a below-average runner.

In April, Badler reported that the Padres have a $2,500,800 bonus pool. The Friars' other largest signing to date was Venezuelan shortstop Ruddy Giron for $600K.

Lately, I'm thinking we need it all. Yeah, would be nice to snare a Puig, wouldn't it.

Let's just hope he isn't a skinny kid 16 going on 26.

We are said to be one of the teams in the running for the "Next Puig", Dariel Alvarez. He's a 24 year old OF from Cuba. We would not be subject to the new international free agent bonus regulations, since Alvarez is at least 23 and has three or more years of professional experience.

Are the Dodgers, Red Sox, Yankees also bidding for this guy? We do need to do something big though.
