Mets ink 17-year-old shortstop

By Adam Rubin

The Mets have signed 17-year-old shortstop Alfredo Reyes from the Dominican Republic for $200,000, a team official confirmed.

"Reyes just turned 17 in October, is a true shortstop with a good approach at the plate. He's already 6-foot-2, but still needs to fill out," the official said.
