Braves, Dominican prospect nearing deal

Posted on: February 22, 2010 9:58 am

David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports the Braves are close to signing 18-year-old shortstop prospect Edward Salcedo of the Dominican Republic. Atlanta is waiting on Salcedo to take a physical in Florida.

Salcedo, who nearly signed with the Indians two years ago but the deal fell through due to questions about his age, is considered to be on the same level as a first-round draft choice.
