With Jasson Dominguez making his way to the Bronx, the Yankees made another investment in the international market on Sunday, settling on an agreement with outfielder Brandon Mayea, according to a source.

Mayea, 17, hails from Cuba and is set to receive $4.35 million, according to sources, making up the majority of the Yankees’ $5.2 million international pool.

He adds to the minor league depth that includes Dominguez as well as last year’s signing Roderick Arias.

The right-hander who scored Mayea was a shortstop before moving to midfield.

Boy Scouts like his short arm and promising power at the plate.

While some consider Mayea a top 10 international talent, others see him as one of the top two players on the international market this year, along with Ethan Salas, a Padres-signed catcher.
