Today the Angels signed a top international prospect with a $1 million signing bonus. Not a bad gift for your 16th birthday.

Hard to believe the Angels are now signing guys born in 2002. Alexander Ramirez is only 16 but already 6’2” and 180#. According to Baseball America, scouts are high on his hitting ability.

Of course at 16 years old, there are a lot of unknowns but Ramirez already has the skills and strength to get him off to a good start.

Here’s a scouting video of him from last year so you can see him in action for yourself.
