Giants sign Dominican outfield prospect Bryan Pena

Are you in the market for dingers? The Giants are. Another update on international-signing day:

Pena looks like a veteran out there. You can read into that description if you want:

Baseball America says he has a lot of power, and is probably moving to first. He's 6'4" and 16 years old, but I feel comfortable moving him along on the Miguel Cabrera timeline, which means he'll help the Giants win the 2017 World Series.

Over at Minor League Ball, they offer this assessment:

Huge power potential. Big uppercut from a strong, handsy swing. The swing doesn't lend itself to contact but all I've seen is BP, so it's hard to tell. The power alone is enough for six figures if not more. I would love to see more of this guy to give a better assessment.

Sounds delightful.
