Who in the world is Edward Salcedo?

Saw this note from everyone's favorite grumpy old man, Paul Hoynes, in today' PD:

The Indians are still negotiating with agent Scott Boras for 16-year-old Dominican Republic shortstop Edward Salcedo. The Tribe's main competition is the New York Yankees.
 "We've talked to Scott a couple of times," Antonetti said.

The Indians have a good relationship with the 6-2, 197-pound Salcedo. He's trained in their academy in the Dominican and he's from the same hometown as Junior Betances, one of the Tribe's staff members.

A rumor recently had the Indians signing Salcedo to a $4 million to $5 million contract. The Indians denied it, but they are trying to find a creative way to get the deal done.

Salcedo has been described as a potential five-tool player. Speed reportedly could be his one shortcoming.

Salcedo's name is new to me (I didn't get any hits in the LGT database), so I did a quick google search (yes, procrastination has hit hard).  It yielded this interesting blog entry, from MVN.  

In light of our recent discussions about the Indians' drafting and acquisition of international prospects this could be another example of how Shapriro et al. bring 'impact' types in the system.  OR, maybe more likely, Salcedo is Sidd Finch reincarnate.
