According to Sports Illustrated, MLB has discovered that Yankees signee Damian Arredondo is older than 16 and not who he says he is.

The $850,000 deal was contingent on “Arredondo” passing an investigation. Now the player faces suspension.

This is not uncommon when dealing with Latin American prospects. Only recently has MLB started investigating the ages and identities of these prospects. In this case, it saved the Yankees from being swindled.
