The Mets have signed Venezuelan righthander Luis Silva for $275,000.

Silva, 16, is 6 feet, 170 pounds with long arms, a high-waisted frame and a loose delivery. He throws strikes and generates sink on his fastball, which he can run up to the low-90s at times. He also throws a mid-70s breaking ball and a solid changeup for his age. Silva trained with Julio Bolivar.

It seems this is the trend for Depo. Get guys like montero who already command the strike zone and will develop mph with proper training

Seems like a better plan than those teams that target guys who can't put a ball in the strike zone and at 16 are done adding velocity.

Can't you sign as many players for under 10,000

And 5 players under 100,000 who don't count against budget?
