Phillies close to signing Venezuelan OF Carlos Tocci

Jim Salisbury has the details here. The rumored price is $750K, which would be a Phillies record in Latin America. Seems to be ultra athletic, with excellent speed, and he throws/bats righthanded. This would be a fairly significant investment, by the Phillies standards, and would be welcomed with open arms.

Update –> He’s signed, according to Baseball America, for $759,000.
