Mariners Announce International Signings


EATTLE, Wash. – Seattle Mariners Director of International Scouting Tim Kissner announced the following international signings.


  • José Aquino, LHP, Dominican Republic
  • Asdrúbal Bueno, INF, Venezuela
  • Luis Chevalier, INF, Dominican Republic
  • Jonathan Clase, OF, Dominican Republic
  • Carlos Fernández, INF, Panama
  • Noelvi Marte, INF, Dominican Republic
  • Adbiel Medina, RHP, Panama
  • Gabe Moncada, 1B/OF, Venezuela
  • Wilton Pérez, RHP, Dominican Republic


“We’re very excited about the versatility of this group,” Kissner said. “It’s a well-balanced class of pitchers and position players who all possess the athleticism and the character to progress through our minor league system. Each of the nine players we signed today has the skills and the makeup to make an impact in our organization over the next several years.”


Marte was ranked the No. 4 overall prospect available in this international signing period by Baseball America.


“Our scouts identified Noelvi Marte as a player with impact speed and power,” Kissner said. “Those skills, combined with his ability to hit, pushed him to the top of this international signing class. His makeup and instincts for the game are well above average, and we believe he will excel once he begins working with our player development group.”
