Carlos Aquino-SS was one of 10 players who agreed to terms during the Louisville Slugger Tournament Series last week. Aquino is from Santiago DR, he hails from the same town of Toronto Bluejays short stop Jose Reyes in Palmar de Arriba where he trained and developed with William Valdez.
Aquino was eligible in 2012 but lacked the strength and ability he is presently showing. He has smooth fielding actions with solid average arm strength and runs average (6.9 60 yard dash). Aquino is a switch hitting line drive gap hitter with more pop from the left side. The Dodgers and Aquino agree to a contract value of $75,000. The contract is pending MLB approval, he will more than likely start his professional career in the Dominican Summer League.
