A's Nearing Signing of 16-year old Dominican Phenom

A's GM Billy Beane is expected to arrive in the Dominican Republic before Wednesday to oversee the signing of Michel Inoa, the 6'7" teenage pitcher, according to Baseball America. He is ineligible to sign until Wednesday so Beane will waste no time getting a deal done.

The kid is 16, he could throw out his arm by 18 and be cleaning windows by 19 who knows. Baseball needs to let these kids go to college and develope a pro game and a pro body. We wont hear about this kid for another 5 years at best, so lets not talk about him anymore.
