Another former Braves prospect has latched onto a new team, per Baseball America’s Ben Badler. The Rangers reportedly inked shortstop Yenci Pena to a $675,000 signing bonus, which will add to the $1.05 million Pena already received from the Braves. Pena, 17, originally signed on with Atlanta last July as part of a group that included shortstop Kevin Maitan, catcher Abrahan Gutierrez and infielders Yunior Severino and Livan Soto. In 2017, he spent his age-16 season in the Dominican Summer League and hit .230/.328/.655 with 11 extra-base hits and seven stolen bases in 190 plate appearances.
