The Mets have agreed to sign 16-year-old Dominican shortstop Gregory Guerrero, the No. 6 international prospect for July 2.
Guerrero, a nephew of former major league star outfielder Vladimir Guerrero, impressed scouts with his overall baseball IQ and ability to hit in games from the right side of the plate. At 5-foot-11, 175 pounds, Guerrero isn’t a big runner but scouts generally felt he had a good chance to stay at shortstop with an above-average arm. Guerrero trains with Wilton Guerrero, and he’s spent time in both the Dominican Prospect League and International Prospect League as well.
