The Los Angeles Dodgers, Seattle Mariners, and Toronto Blue Jays had an active day on the international market Monday, coming to terms with six Latin American youngsters between the three clubs.

Here's a quick breakdown of the deals:

  • The Dodgers signed four teenagers out of the Dominican Republic, the team announced. The players are outfielder Ariel Sandoval (who we reported on last week), shortstop Ravel Hernandez, outfielder Deivy Castillo, and right-hander Miguel Urena.
  • The Mariners signed 17-year-old Dominican outfielder Luis Liberato for $140,000, reports Ben Badler of Baseball America. Badler lists Liberato at 6' 1", 175 pounds and writes that the young center fielder boasts a "mature approach" and solid gap power from the left side the plate.
  • The Blue Jays agreed to terms with 18-year-old Honduran right-hander Dennis Villatoro on a $20,000 deal, reports Bob Elliott of the Toronto Sun. Villatoro had drawn interest from several clubs before agreeing to his deal with Toronto.
