I understand that the Twins got $700,000 or $750,000 International Bonus Money from the Orioles.As I understand, it has to be used during this signing period, ie, before June 30 (or is it an earlier date?).
I also recall that the Twins spent their entire allocation for the young outfielder from Venezuela (Urbana).Does anyone know if they signed any other prospects for more than the minimum (is it $5,000 or $10,000?) and are over the allocation and this trade will allow them to not have to deal with the penalty?
If not already over, this will enable them to sign one or more late bloomers to contracts.Have to believe they have one or more players in mind if this is the case.Does anyone know anything about this?
In any case, I really like them getting something in return for a player that had to be removed from the 40-man to make room for someone much more valuable to the team.Great maneuvering by the FO.
