The Atlanta Braves Canary Islands baseball academy on Tenerife has yielded its first product. The team has signed shortstop Alejandro Sánchez. He is the first Spanish-born player signed by the Braves, and he is also the first player signed from the teams new baseball academy on the island of Tenerife.
This is not really a major international signing, but its good to see the team getting an early return on their investment in Tenerife. Europe might be the next great prospect haven, and the Braves have a strong foot in the door. Sanchez is the second European prospect the Braves have signed this year, the other being back in April.
