Brewers' Ernesto Martinez: Inks deal with Brewers

Martinez signed a contract with the Brewers on Thursday worth $925,000, Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com reports.

The 17-year-old Cuban prospect landed a spot on the French national team for the World Baseball Classic this past year, but he's more well-known for his contributions to the Cuban U15 team back in 2014, when he batted .465 in the World Championships. Martinez doesn't walk a ton, but his bat is his main selling point and could help him land a job in Milwaukee in the next three or four years.
