International signing day: Dodgers sign Daniel Padilla, Alvaro Trillo, Sven Schuller

USA TODAY Sports

The Dodgers added three players on the first day of Major League Baseball's international signing period.

The international signing period began on Tuesday, and the Dodgers signed three players. The Dodgers added right-handed pitcher Alvaro Trillo, 16, from Sucre, Venezuela, outfielder Daniel Padilla, 16, from Anzoategui, Venezuela, and right-handed pitcher Sven Schuller, 17, from Regensburg, Germany.

Both Trillo and Padilla signed for $200,000 each, per Kiley McDaniel of Fox Sports.

The Dodgers increased their international bonus pool in their trade with the Cubs, adding slot No. 92, worth $209,700 as part of the Carlos Marmol / Matt Guerrier swap. The Dodgers' cap for spending on international amateurs is $2,322,600.

Any signing bonuses of $10,000 or less do not count against the cap, and all clubs are allowed to sign six players for up to $50,000 each that don't count against the cap. The international signing period runs from July 2 to June 15, 2014.

None of the three prospects signed on Tuesday were listed in the top 30 international prospects by either Baseball America or MLB.com. Ben Badler at Baseball America wrote that "Padilla has an intriguing skill set with plus speed, a strong arm and good power potential."
