The Atlanta Braves announced this week the signing of 18 year old Edward Salcedo. They consider Salcedo the same caliber as a first round draft selection, which is especially important since they don't have one this year because of their signing closer Billy Wagner. The Dominican Republic native has the right combination of hitting and fielding ability to make it to the Atlanta infield in a few years as either a shortstop or third baseman. Another plus about Salcedo is that with Chipper Jones and Yunel Escobar holding down the left side of the Braves infield, the club won't have to rush him through the minors. Just remember the name Edward Salcedo. He'll be at the forefront in a few years.
