Baseball America has backtracked on its earlier report that the Mariners have signed 16-year-old outfielder Helsin Martinez of the Dominican Republic. Here was my writeup on that apparently premature report by Baseball America.
In the new article, Mariners vice president of international operations Bob Engle is quoted saying, “We did not sign Martinez in the Dominican Republic. That is not correct at all. Whoever put out that information is totally inaccurate.”
