Continuing their recent re-focus on Latin America, the White Sox signed 16-year old RHP Victor Done out of Villa Mella in the Dominican Republic. There is no word on the terms of the agreement.

Baseball America describes Done as "6-foot-3, 190 pounds with a solid delivery for his age and a fastball that has reached 91 mph. He has flashed a sharp 74-78 mph curveball that's ahead of his changeup right now."

Since the beginning of the July 2 signing period, the White Sox have been the most active in recent memory. In addition to Done, they have signed three other Dominicans: OF Hanlet Otano, SS Johan Cruz and 3B Luis Castillo.

The increased activity is the direct result of the hiring of Marco Paddy last November as special assistant to the general manager-international operations.

In January, prior to this year's signing period, the White Sox also signed RHP Luis Martinez out of Venezuela.
