SSKansas City Royals  
July 3, 2014
Aracena signed with the Royals for $850,000, Ben Badler of Baseball America reports.
Aracena is just 16 years old and likely won't see the big leagues for quite a few years. Despite his small stature (5-foot-7, 175 pounds), Aracena brings several intriguing tools to the table, such as a solid arm and range as a middle infielder. The switch-hitter is also considered to be a threat on the base paths and has the potential to develop power from both sides of the plate. Once he's ready, the Dominican Republic native will look to rise through the ranks of the Royals' farm system.
