And thanks everyone for the news on last year’s bonus pool signing, the 6’ 5” pitcher, and on this year’s prospect. When do signings begin?

Thanks. I can't find any further info, though. What's your source?

Found this on the mlb at bat site, in the transaction section. That was all the information listed.

For those of you asking about rosters, they are up on the MiLB site.The DSL Twins began play on Saturday, losing 13-4 to the Yankees.Took a look at the roster and nearly 2/3 of the team are first year pros.So this will be a very young team, the youngest I remember.Expect the won-loss record will reflect that. 

 

By the way, Urbina led off, playing center and getting his first hit...a double.

I finally found a baseball Oscar Corporan signing by the Twins at this weird Czech baseball site "mlbcz.com":

But no further info beyond his age, height, and weight.

 

Although using Google Translate on the mlbcz.com home page tells me that Josh Bell was named "Batsman of the Moon". :)

On the Fangraphs chat (I think yesterday) one of the prospects guys explained why they won't put a ton of effort into talking / ranking those guys.

 

Nearly all of them have deals in place, and so few scouts have even watched the guys that are about to sign. So, they can't get updated information.

 

They can get information on 13-14 year olds though.....

Yeah, I mean I'd agree. I probably adds content, but probably not qualify content, which then only leads to "why didn't my team get such and such ranked guy" and "my team crushed with these guys I've never heard of" stuff. Even more mainstream and justifiable rankings are starting to feel a bit click-bait-y these days.

 

Though I still too often click them....

July 2nd! An international player is eligible to sign with a Major League team between July 2 and June 15 of the following year if he is 17, or will turn 17 by the end of the first season of his contract. I completely plagiarized this!!! Because I don't know how to copy, cut or paste things!!! :) This is what popped up on Google when I typed in July 2nd international signing period!!! :) \m/

Wasn't that a Stormy Daniels Oscar nominated film?

Jorge Polanco OPS'd .592 in the DSL. Wouldn't get too hung up on stats there.

If you ain't got no haters, you ain't poppin'.

... I think you should choose another player from the long list of examples.

 

Yes, Polanco OPS'd .592 there... but he was 16 years old and moved up to the GCL the day after he turned 17! I have been a big Polanco fan for a long time :)!
