International signing period: Dodgers reportedly sign Romer Cuadrado, Jefry Souffront, Leonardo Crawford

Peter G. Aiken-USA TODAY Sports

The Dodgers have reportedly signed five international amateurs on Wednesday.

On the first day of the 2014-2015 international signing period the Dodgers have been busy, with five reported signings on the first day. The biggest splash made by the club on Wednesday was Romer Cuadrado, a 16-year-old power-hitting outfielder from Venezuela.

Cuadrado signed for $750,000, per Ben Badler of Baseball America, just over 38 percent of their allotted bonus pool total of $1,963,800

The 6'4, 195-pound right-hander wasn't ranked in the top 30 international signing period prospects by Baseball America or MLB.com, but was cited as a noteworthy prospect by Badler, who described Cuadrado as "a raw project in the field and at the plate, where he’s still smoothing out his swing and learning to recognize pitches."

In addition to Cuadrado and the already reported signings of Felix Osorio and Johan Calderon, Kiley McDaniel of Scout.com brings news of a few more Dodgers deals.

Here is video of Crawford from five months ago:
