http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/news?slug=txgiantsmateo&prov=st&type=lgns

SAN FRANCISCO (TICKER) —The San Francisco Giants signed 16-year-old Dominican righthander Luis Angel Mateo on Wednesday, the first day international prospects are eligible to sign with major league clubs.

Terms were not disclosed.

The Giants were more than happy to secure the services of the 6-3, 175-pound Mateo.

“The Giants are very pleased to be able to sign Luis Mateo,” said John Barr, the special assistant to general manager Brian Sabean. “He is a young, strong pitcher who shows good command of two pitches with a plus breaking ball. Today is the beginning of the signing season, and we will continue to be aggressive in signing players both domestically and internationally.”

I'll let you experts dissect and discuss. More information would be nice.

OT: Since I've got your attention. I have two tickets to the Giants vs. the Brewers on July 20th. The seats aren't great (View Reserved) but I can't go because I'll be doing the Aids Walk. I'm willing to let them go for free since I didn't pay for them anyway but a small donation (in your name) to sponser me would be appreciated!
