If you didn’t read the post yesterday, please do so. There could be some changes to the site coming this spring, but I would greatly appreciate your input on the idea.
After making no notable signings at all during the international signing period the Reds made their first real splash by signing 18-year-old and 6′ 4″ left hander Jacob Constante. He reportedly has a fastball that works 92-94 MPH with very good movement, a potentially above-average slider and a change up that needs work. He signed for $730,000. There are several videos of him on youtube, though some are poor quality. Below is a video from a bullpen session that is good quality.
His arm action is very clean. The ball seems to come out faster than his arm action. Reports are the he is fluent in both Spanish and English, so I would expect him to be stateside and likely in Arizona this season.
