Astros sign Kristian Trompiz

With a captip to Native_Astro, Enrique Rojas is reporting that the Astros have signed 16-year old Venezuelan shortstop Kristian Trompiz for $300,000.

Courtesy of SpikesNStars, we have a link to this note from Ben Badler on Trompiz:
Scouts have some concerns about his bat speed from the right side, but he's shown he can work the count with a solid approach and hitting instincts. He's around an average runner and a solid fielder, though his 45 arm may fit better at second base.

Is he a switch hitter, it sounds that way which a tad less skill from the right side?
