    From the South Florida Sun-Sentinel

    The Marlins met with 16-year-old Dominican catcher Francisco Pena in New York over the weekend.

    Pena, the youngest son of Yankees coach Tony Pena, is considered among the top amateurs on the international market. The Yankees, Mets, Nationals and Reds have been the most aggressive. The international signing period opens Sunday. …

    Considering how bad the Yankees system is with respect to catching prospects, and the fact that Tony Pena works for the Yankees now, I would hope that the Yankees can get this deal done quickly.
