Dodgers Sign 16-Year-Old LHP Julio Urias From Mexico

The Los Angeles Dodgers continued their international spending Thursday with the signing of 16-year-old Mexican left hander Julio Urias, according to Ben Badler of Baseball America. Here's Badler's read on Urias:

"Some scouts considered Urias, whose rights were transferred from Mexico City of the Mexican League, to be one of the better pitching prospects on the market. He has touched 92 mph and shown good feel for pitching for his age."

The terms of Urias signing have yet to been released, but MLB Trade Rumors is reporting that teams had a feeling that Urias would sign for "more than $1MM and maybe close to $2MM." According to Badler, not all of what the Dodgers paid for Urias will count against their 2012-13 allotted $2.9 million international bonus pool, with his rights being transferred from the Mexican League.
