Angels sign pair of Dominican outfield prospects

Angels1Jerry Dipoto vowed to be aggressive in Latin America, and one of the Angels' first moves under their new general manager was to sign two outfield prospects from the Dominican Republic, Ranyemi Alberto Mendoza for $70,000 and Ayendi Perez for $25,000.

The speedy Perez, who is 5 feet 10, 160 pounds and bats left-handed, projects as more of a leadoff hitter, while the 6-2, 180-pound Mendoza is more of a power hitter with a good arm.
