As Jasson Dominguez heads to The Bronx, the Yankees made another investment in the international market on Sunday, matching outfielder Brandon Mayea, according to a source.
The 17-year-old Mayea is from Cuba and will receive $4.35 million, according to sources, which is most of the Yankees’ international pool of $5.2 million.
He contributes depth in the minor league, including Dominguez and last year’s signing, Roderick Arias.
The right-hander Mayea was a shortstop before switching to midfield.
Scouts love his short arm, as well as his promising power at the plate.
While some view Mayea as a top-10 international talent, some see him as one of the top two players in the international market this year, along with Ethan Salas, a catcher signed by the Padres.
