No he leads the world in OPS though


210 PAs, so not enough to qualify. Still impressive though.

So Ohtani article states Mets only have 150k left in their pool. Did Marcana sign for 850k or were there other signings not reported?

Don't think that matters for Otani, you have to go over no matter the team to sign him

Hmm, let me guess which team is going to sign him??

So frustrating.

I would assume Otani goes to the Dodgers, right? They get first dibs on all free agents. Yamkees get him if the Dodgers don’t want him.

So did Marcana sign for ~850k? Seems a little high since Consuerga signed for 500k.

Quote:

Ben Badler of Baseball America reports that the Twins have voided their $3 million agreement with Dominican shortstop Jelfry Marte.

Minnesota apparently uncovered a vision issue during Marte's physical. The speedy 16-year-old is back on the international free agent market and has already begun working out for other teams in the Orlando area. Badler suggests it is "possible Marte could still sign with the Twins for a smaller bonus."

The guy the M's traded for bonus pool money was their 8th ranked prospect.

Have to imagine the M's think they have a real shot at Ohtani, right?

No one will have a shot if they don’t agree on a posting system by Monday.

However with the voided Twins contract, Braves penalty looming, new Cuban defectors. There is a lot of upside to have additional budget room at this point in the offseason.

What is the Monday deadline?

I assumed that MLB would write an exception to grandfather him in. It makes no sense to apply the international rules to him cause he's in his 20s, not 16 and the old rules he could have just signed a regular contract. The new rules should be re-written for him and I think that was the plan all along.
