The Phillies signed three players today on the first day of the international signing period.

They signed Venezuelan shortstop Arquimedes Gamboa, one of the top infielders on the international market, for $900,000. Gamboa ranked 15th on MLB.com’s Top 30 International Prospects list. They also signed Venezuelan shortstop Daniel Brito for $650,000 and Panamanian left-hander Jhon Nunez for close to $100,000.

Ruben Amaro Jr. said the Phillies planned to use most or all of their $3.2 million allotted for international players.

“Three signed and working on others,” Amaro said. “We’ll find out more in the next 24 hours.”

In accordance with the Collective Bargaining Agreement, each team is allotted a $700,000 base and a bonus pool based on the team’s record in 2013 for the international signing period. Philadelphia’s bonus pool total for this year’s signing period is $3,221,800.
