In a deal that was agreed upon back in October, the Cardinals have finalized a contract with 17-year-old Dominican right-hander Andres Serrano that includes a $750,000 bonus.

However, according to Ben Badler of Baseball America the signing “is still pending Major League Baseball’s investigation into Serrano’s age and identity.”

Here’s a little of Badler’s scouting report:

Serrano, 17, has a long-armed, projectable 6-foot-3, 190-pound frame and a fastball that scouts have said they’ve seen range anywhere from 90-95 mph. Serrano is a good athlete who also throws a curveball and a changeup, with the curveball the most advanced of his secondary offerings.

If approved the $750,000 bonus would be the highest given to a Dominican pitcher from the 2011 class.

    Wait the DR won’t kick the Cards out of the country for such an atrocity?! Must be that Mid-West bias everyone keeps talking about.

    You mean 20 year old Dominican pitcher, and I’m guessing his name is not Andres Sorrano.

      I guarantee his name is not Sorrano.
