Mets News: Mets sign 17 year old - SS Oliver Pascual
The New York Mets have signed 17 yr old, Oliver Pascual from the Dominican Republic. He is a 5'10 switch hitting shortstop.
The Dominican Prospect League says:
Pascual is gamer; He’s not impressive physically but he has what it takes to play the game. He’s shown the ability to get on base whether by line drives, bunt or BB. He doesn’t run an average 60 yard-dash but will show you above average speed from home to 1st. He’s a switch hitter with the ability to spray the ball to all fields and he makes frequent solid contact. Defensively he has athletic actions, he can flash the leather with good foot work and has a solid average to plus arm. Oliver is the type of player that makes things happen on the diamond; offensively and defensively he’s a joy to watch.
Oliver Pascual agrees to terms for a contract value of $90,000.
