Salas is a 16-year-old Venezuelan catcher and younger brother of Miami Marlins prospect Jose Salas. The younger Salas is said to be one of the best international prospects in recent memory and has a complete five-tool outlook. The deal is reportedly worth $5.6 million.
The Padres have been aggressively rebuilding their roster over the past few seasons, bringing in several pre-eminent players via trade and free agency. Although Salas is several years away from a big league debut, he assures the team will remain relevant for years to come.
