The mostly high sought Latin American international prospect in nearly a decade, Jasson The Martian’ Dominguez, has reportedly signed a deal with the New York Yankees that includes a $5.1 million signing bonus.

Dominguez, 16, is a 5’11”, 195-pound center fielder who is regarded by scouts as a classic five-tool player. Dominguez is a powerful switch-hitter with top-end speed and a powerful throwing arm.

The Yankees had $5.4 million to spend this season for their international bonus pool money, and have devoted 95% of it to sign Dominguez. The Yankees $5.1 million bonus offered to Dominguez is a club record. Previously, the Yankees high for a signing bonus to an international prospect was $3.2 million.

Besides the Yankees, the Texas Rangers, Los Angeles Angels, and Tampa Bay Rays were all extremely keen on attempting to sign Dominguez as well. According to ESPN, the losing suitors of Dominguez are all currently lamenting the loss of whom evaluators firmly believe will be a star before too long, much like Juan Soto, Ozzie Albies, or Ronald Acuna Jr.

Since arriving at Ivan Noboa’s academy as a 13-year-old, Dominguez has stood out among all the prospects according to Noboa. According to Noba, since his arrival, Dominguez has had an extremely developed physique and an ability to hit for extreme power. Scouts have dubbed Dominguez with the nickname, ‘The Martian’ (El Marciano), due to his skillset, which is said to be out of this world.
