The White Sox have agreed to terms with Victor Done, a 16-year-old righthander from the Dominican Republic.
Nothing has been released regarding the terms of the agreement.
Done is listed at 6-foot-3, 190 pounds with a "solid delivery for his age and a fastball that has reached 91 mph," according to Badler. He adds that the Dominican product "has flashed a sharp 74-78 mph curveball that’s ahead of his changeup right now."
Badler notes that the White Sox have significantly increased their international presence over the last year. Along with Done, Chicago has also signed Dominican outfielder Hanlet Otano, Dominican shortstop Johan Cruz, and Dominican third baseman Luis Castillo.
South Side Sox says the club’s increased activity in the international market this summer "is the direct result of the hiring of Marco Paddy last November as special assistant to the general manager-international operations."
