Dodgers sign six international free agents


DENVER -- The Dodgers confirmed six international signings effective Wednesday, headed by 16-year-old Venezuelan outfielder Romer Cuadrado for a reported $750,000.

The club also signed three teenagers from the Dominican Republic: 16-year-old outfielder Johan Calderon, 17-year-old outfielder Felix Osorio and 17-year-old shortstop Jefrey Souffront, as well as 17-year-old left-handed pitcher Leonardo Crawford from Nicaragua and 16-year-old first baseman Eric Meza from Mexico.

Also, right-handed pitcher Kameron Uter of Pace Academy, the 12th-round selection from last month's First-Year Player Draft, signed. The club has signed its top 18 picks and 31 of its 40 selections. That includes top pick Grant Holmes, who struck out five in two scoreless innings in his pro debut for the Rookie Level Arizona Dodgers on Wednesday.
