San Francisco Giants Sign 15 International Players

The Giants had a quiet International Signing Day, signing four players

Last season the Giants went over their bonus pool in signing Lucius Fox, meaning that this year they aren't allowed to spend more than $300,000 on any pool-eligible player this year. Because of this, the Giants had a relatively quite day in comparison to the Atlanta Braves who signed twelve players, including many of the top talents, and even the cross-bay rivals in Oakland, who signed the highly touted Lazaro Armenteros from Cuba along with some other top-50 talent.

The Giants added a pair of shortstops in Gordi Santos (Dominican Republic) and Andrew Caraballo (Venezuela) along with outfielder Ismael Alcantara (DR) and right-hander Rafael Martinez (VEN) according to Baseball America, and according to Giants Prospect Talk (on Twitter at GiantsProspects), there were another eleven players signed. Here is the entire list:

3B Samuel Jorge, SS Enoc Watts, SS Gordi Santos, OF Ismael Alcantara, RHP Rafael Martinez, C Keiberth Mejias, SS Andrew Caraballo, OF Luilly Pichardo, OF Alexander Canario, OF, Raiber Guiterrez, C Omar Medina, IF Anyesber Siviria, LHP Elian Suarez and RHP Yovanny Moronta.
