The Atlanta Braves sign 18-year-old Dominican shortstop Edward Salcedo to a contract. Considered as one of the top talents available on the international market, the youngster receives a signing bonus of $1.6 million and will likely begin his professional career with the Class-A Rome Braves. Salcedo’s connection to the Cleveland Indians is that he was originally signed by the Indians in 2007. When it was discovered that he was underage, the contract was voided.
