    It's too bad Baltimore is in our division. They trade IFA money for organizational filler.

    They did the exact thing last season when they traded Yefry Ramirez to the Orioles for IFA money.

    Yep, I was thinking maybe see if they still have interest in Nestor? No pressure to keep him on the 25.

    Ah, my bad--forgot about Ramirez. We should hit them up again then. For some inexplicable reason, Baltimore is unwilling to spend in the IFA market. Oh well, their loss.

    From Mlb.com


    https://www.mlb.com/video/top-intl-p...z/c-1946048683


    Osiel Rodriguez | Rank: 9

    Scouting grades: Fastball: 60 | Slider: 55 | Curve: 55 | Changeup: 50 | Split: 50 | Control: 50
    One of the top pitchers on the international market this year, Rodriguez is the latest in a long line of Cuban stars chasing the big league dream.

    The right-hander's fastball has been clocked at 97 mph and the pitch usually hovers in the low to mid-90s. There is some concern about a drop in velocity at times, but evaluators attribute the decrease to normal fatigue or being overworked on the showcase circuit. A strike-thrower, Rodriguez has a good mound presence and demeanor. He changes his arm slot and throws several different pitches at different angles, which has proven to be both a blessing and a curse as far as scouts are concerned.

    Evaluators love his "big arm," but the club that signs him might ask the teenager to refine his approach and focus on only three pitches. He has an unorthodox -- sometimes described as a 'violent" -- delivery, but it has not impacted his pitchability.

    Mariners reportedly sign top Taiwanese LHP 18-year-old Chang Ching-Yu to record-high $700,000 bonus

    The international amateur market never sleeps.



    Chang is just 18, but already boasts a fastball that runs up to 92 mph. Itís paired with a changeup, as well as a big breaking curveball and a split/forkball. Hereís a highlight clip from his dominant performance against an All-Star team from Japanís high school circuit:

    Re: 2018 International Free Agency

    I can't help but think that seeing Alcantara's ranking, but also taking into consideration his obviously fantastic physical tools that he's probably a little raw. Am I right in thinking though that if he were to hit on most of his potential that he could be an special talent because of those physical gifts?

    If he can maintain that speed as he developed it would be a huge plus
