Nationals sign Roberto Perez
The Nationals agreed to terms with shortstop Roberto Perez, who was selected in the eighth round of the 2009 First-Year Player Draft out of Dorado (PR) Academy.
Perez, 18, had originally committed to played baseball at Oklahoma State University. He is the nephew of former big league shortstop Dickie Thon.
With today’s signing, the Nationals have now agreed to terms with 27 players from the 2009 First-Year Player Draft, including 10 of their top 12 picks.
