Venezuelan shortstop Andres Gimenez, the No. 2 international prospect for July 2, has agreed to sign with the Mets.
Gimenez, 16, earned high praise from scouts both for his lefthanded bat and ability to stick at shortstop. He’s 5-foot-11, 165 pounds with a sweet swing that works in games, above-average speed and the potential for average to above-average defense at shortstop. Gimenez trains with Eduardo Navarro.
