Astros sign 18-year old first baseman

The Astros have signed 18-year old Nicaraguan first baseman Mesac Laguna (captip to MLBTR).

Thanks to the wonder of two years of college Spanish and Google Translate, we can find these tidbits:

Laguna is 6'2, 190lbs
He was signed by the Astros' Nicaraguan scout Leo Guevara
Laguna will play in the Venezuelan or Dominican Winter League in 2010

My bet is against him playing in the VSL, since the Astros no longer maintain an academy in Venezuela and don't have a team in the VSL anymore. Just sayin'...
