The Milwaukee Brewers have a 16-year-old signee from the Dominican Republic who apparently has power. Lots of power.
The team picked up Gilbert Lara and showed off his skills in a batting practice session at Miller Park on Monday.
He has long distance power, as TODAY'S TMJ4's Lance Allan says he struck a homer near Bernie Brewers' chalet in left field.
As described by 620WTMJ Brewers voice Joe Block...
Gilbert Lara taking BP at Miller Park. Impressive power occasionally. Thin, but tall and broad-shouldered. Excited to see him in a few years— Joe Block (@joe_block) July 21, 2014
