Astros sign Dominican LHP Junior Garcia

Here's Ben Badler with a report that the Astros have signed 17-year old LHP Junior Garcia out of the Dominican Republic for $200,000.

The link takes you to the free write-up, but Garcia currently throws 86-88mph with an apparently decent curve.

The $200,000 comes out of the Astros' $2.9m bonus pool for international signings in 2012/13.
