Reportedly possessing plus-plus power potential and a consistent bat, De Leon highlighted another strong crop of July 2nd signs by the Yankees.
New York also inked 16-year old Venezuelan outfielder Eduardo Sosa, who some scouts have compared to a Johnny Damon type as possessing good speed, decent power, but a better arm in the outfield.
Signing alongside De Leon in Juan Dolio, a town in the Dominican Republic, were third baseman Elio De La Rosa, outfielder Henry Pena, right-handed pitcher Arodis Vizcaino, outfielder Edwin Beard, and Brazilian right-handed pitcher Maicar Sousa.

No terms of the deals were disclosed and more signings are expected in the coming weeks.
