Julian Leon - The Next Pudge?


The Dodgers signed 16-year-old catcher Julian Leon from Sonora, Mexico last year. Logan White told Dodgers.com the following -

"Leon was highly regarded as one of the best catching prospects on the International market and he should follow a long list of quality catchers to come from Mexico.”

Univision Arizona caught up with Leon last week. (Spanish) {linked here}

Dodgers scout Mike Brito signed Leon and he says - "Catcher, strong, extraordinary power, has an above average arm"

Does he not remind you of Ivan Rodriguez? Maybe he's the Mexican pudge.

Leon tells Univision that he's been working hard to one day play in the big leagues with the Dodgers. 

Suerte Julian!
