Class of 2017

Minnesota Twins sign highly regarded SS Jefry Marte to a deal worth $3.0MM

DOMINICAN REPUBLIC – 

Jefry Marte, SS, 5’10”, 155lb, S/R, 3/13/01, La Vega, Dominican Republic

Marte developed with trainer Chico Faña in his home town of La Vega in the Dominican Republic.

Jefry has an extremely high ceiling with superstar potential. At the plate, he makes consistent hard contact from both sides of the plate, with well above average speed. Defensively he ranks amongst the best in the 2017 international class. Not only do evaluators project Jefry to stick at short-stop, but many believe he has gold glove potential.  He has good footwork, above-average range to both sides, quick hands, a strong arm and an overall outstanding feel for the position which allows his defensive tools to play up. Marte has a Francisco Lindor like makeup, even down to size, and it just makes you wonder just how soon it will be until he makes that kind of impact in a major league lineup.

The Minnesota Twins and Jefry Marte reached an agreement for a contract value of $3,000,000.
