The Washington Nationals have agreed to terms on professional contracts with four international free agents: right-handed pitcher Ramses Rosario and outfielders Aldrem Corredor, Darryl Fiorentino and Luis Guzman. Nationals Executive Vice President of Baseball Operations and General Manager Mike Rizzo and Nationals Director of International Scouting Johnny DiPuglia made the joint announcement.
Rosario is a 16-year-old Venezuelan that’s listed at 6-foot-3 and 175 pounds. He has advanced pitching instincts and commands three quality pitches, according to the Nationals.
Corredor, 16, is listed at 6-foot-1 and 170 pounds. He is also a native of Venezuela and demonstrates "exceptional plate discipline and can play both corner-outfield positions."
Fiorentino, a 16-year-old from the Dominican Republic, is an "exceptional defender with a strong throwing arm, above-average speed and an athletic frame (6-foot-2, 180 pounds)."
Guzman’s age was not immediately known, but the Nationals do describe him as a "powerful bat" that projects as a superior defensive outfielder. He is a native of the DR and is listed at 6-foot-1 and 183 pounds.
