Meanwhile a 16-year old Cuban, Jose Lazaro Contreras, was just signed to the major leagues with a 1.05 million dollar signing bonus with the Tampa Bay Rays. Signed in DR
Good for him but it begs the question
Are Dominicans allowed to leave school at such an early age if they get an offer ?

Look at the size of that kid. Lying about his age maybe ?

How long has he been in DR? Was he at an academy or just brought there recently to be signed? Mr AE tells me 16 yr olds can be signed in DR but they can’t play in MLB until they’re 18.

Major League Baseball has an 18-year-old minimum for U.S. players and 17 for international players. But you can sign at 16.

And the youngest player in MLB who played last season is a top Dominican prospect who played CF for the Yankees at 18.

Jasson Dominguez is the youngest active MLB player in the world.


Born in Esperanza in the Dominican Republic, Dominguez is a switch-hitting center fielder for the New York Yankees Organization. He has been playing since the COVID-19 games were canceled.


Enrolled in the games when he was just 16, Dominguez has been taking the world by storm through his passion and commitment to the game of baseball. He is considered a type of anomaly, since there are not many professional baseball players of his age or caliber
