Dodgers Sign Five International Prospects

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — When Magic Johnson, Stan Kasten and Mark Walter said they wanted to pursue the international market harder than their then newly-acquired Dodgers had in years, they meant it.

The Dodgers announced on Tuesday the signings of five international prospects.

The club signed a pair of 16-year-olds out of Willemstad, Curacao; outfielder Shakir Albert and catcher Hendrik Clementina. Another 16-year-old outfield prospect, Julio Lugo, was signed out of Bani in the Dominican Republic. Gersel Pitre, a 17-year-old catcher from Vargas Venezuela, and Misja Harcksen, 18, a right handed pitcher from Rotterdam, Netherlands, were also signed.

In 2013, the Dodgers signed 47 international prospects, including 23 from the Dominican Republic, 10 from Venezuela, four from Mexico, two from Colombia, two from Curacao, and one from Brazil, Germany, Italy, Japan, Netherlands and Panama each.
