Source: Yankees sign standout July 2 prospect Wilmer Romero, cf of DR’s La Academia. Don’t have bonus info now but imagine it’s significant.

Romero is a 16-year old outfielder listed at 6’3″ and 185 lbs who has been compared to another Yankees prospect, Slade Heathcott. Baseball America named him the 9th best prospect in the Latin American class. Supposedly he’s raw, he’s only 16, but has five-tool potential.
