Nationals sign four international free agents

In addition to the news that the Nationals picked up veteran middle infielder Cesar Izturis today, the team also announced the signing of four international free agents: right-handed pitcher Ramses Rosario and outfielders Aldrem Corredor, Darryl Florentino and Luis Guzman.

Rosario, Corredor and Florentino are all listed as 16 years old. No age was announced for Guzman.

Rosario checks in at 6-foot-3, 175 lbs. and is a native of Venezuela. The Nats feel he has "advanced pitching instincts and commands three quality pitches."

Corredor (6-foot-1, 170 lbs.) is a left-handed hitter from Venezuela who plays both corner outfield positions. The Nationals like his power and plate discipline.

Florentino (6-foot-2, 180 lbs.) is from the Dominican Republic. The Nationals consider him a strong defender with a good arm and above-average speed.

The Nats view Guzman (6-foot-1, 183 lbs.) as a "prototypical leadoff hitter" who has a "powerful bat and projects as a superior defensive outfielder. He's a native of the Domincan Republic.
