Brewers agree to deal with prospect Leal
CINCINNATI -- The Brewers reached an agreement earlier this month with 16-year-old pitching prospect Yosmer Leal, a right-hander from Venezuela who still must pass a physical exam and Major League Baseball's age investigation.

Leal received a $370,000 bonus, according to MLB.com's Jesse Sanchez, which would be one of the richest deals in Brewers history for a Latin American player.

Assuming he passes MLB's investigation, standard procedure for all Latin American signees, Leal would begin his career at the Brewers' new academy in the Dominican Republic.
