Rangers sign another 16-year-old OF from Dominican


ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - The Texas Rangers have signed their second 16-year-old outfielder from the Dominican Republic in a matter of days, handing out another big signing bonus, too.

Ronald Guzman got a 2012 contract Saturday with a signing bonus of $3.45 million.

Texas announced Guzman's signing three days after the Rangers confirmed they had signed outfielder Nomar Mazara, another 16-year-old prospect from the Dominican Republic.

Mazara got a $5 million bonus.

Guzman and Mazara, both left-handed hitters, will report to the Rangers' Dominican complex in Boca Chica when they return home. Both were in Texas this week.

The Rangers also promoted Cuban outfielder Leonys Martin from Double-A Frisco to Triple-A Round Rock. The Rangers signed Martin to a $15.5 million, five-year deal in May.
