The Toronto Blue Jays have signed 16-year-old catcher Santiago Nessy.

Nessy, considered one of the top power prospects on the international free agent market, hails from La Victoria, Venezuela.  The right-handed hitter is 6-foot-2 and weighs 190 pounds. 

Marco Paddy, the Blue Jays' Director Latin America Operations, who scouted Nessy along with scout Rafael Moncada and Assistant General Manager, Player Personnel, Tony LaCava, commented on the signing.  "He is a young catcher with a lot of power.  We have followed him for a few years now and were very impressed with his ability and his character.  He is an impressive young man who loves to play baseball and has a bright future."
