Dodgers to Sign Kristian Cardozo, Consensus Top 25 International Free Agent

According to Jesse Sanchez of, the Dodgers have agreed to terms with right-handed pitcher Kristian Cardozo.

Cardozo hails from Venezuela and is ranked as a top 25 international free agent by both Fangraphs and MLB Pipeline.

This is the scouting report on Cardozo according to Jesse Sanchez:

He has an easy, repeatable delivery paired with a loose and under control arm action. He has shown the ability to throw strikes and his three quality pitch mix stands out for a player his age. Cardozo’s fastball usually sits in the 90-mph range for multiple innings, and he has been up to 92 mph with good command.

Although the velocity sounds a little low, do not forget Cardozo is a teenager. He was ranked 21st overall by MLB Pipeline for a reason.

The terms on Cardozo are not yet known.
