Yankees sign Dominican prospect Roderick Arias to $3.5 million deal

The New York Yankees made official the signing of prospect Roderick Arias with a deal of 3.5 million dollars, according to a report by journalist Jesse Sánchez of MLB.com

In this way, the 17-year-old Dominican joins the Bronx franchise, where he will be considered the shortstop of the future.

Arias is 17 years old and is described as a very talented defensive infielder. He is also a good hitter and shows above average speed.

There is a long way to go to see the debut of Roderick Arias in the Major Leagues, but surely his time in the minor leagues will be closely followed by fans, since we are talking about a teenager with qualities similar to those exhibited by the Hall of Fame member, Derek Jeter.
