The Phillies have signed players from all over the world and recently they added an outfielder from Germany.
Julsan Kamara, a 17-year-old outfielder and a member of the German Junior National Team, was recently signed to a seven-year minor league contract.
Kamara is 6-foot-4, 192 pounds. He throws and bats righthanded.
"The ball comes off his bat well and we think there is potential power there," said Benny Looper, the Phillies assistant general manager, player personnel. "He has general athleticism and we are hoping that translates to a good baseball player."
