Summers making the start for New Britain. Is there any issue with Baxendale or was this just a promotion for Summers?

Since no one is asking, Thorpe was signed for $500k last year coming out of Australia. Something to consider when we think about some of the signings the Twins will ultimately make this year, not always the 7 figure guys.
I was actually thinking about something similar earlier today. A few notable international signings who weren't huge bonus babies:
Oscar Taveras: $145,000
Gregory Polanceo: $75,000
and a name Twins fans are familiar with
Oswaldo Arcia: $80,000
I remember reading one of the major prospect analysts (I think it may have been Jason Parks) earlier this year saying something to the affect that he would rather spread the spending pool out over a lot of players rather than signing one or two of the top dollar guys. As much of a crap shoot as the draft can be, signing 16 year olds from other countries is even more so. Of course signing a whole bunch of the big figure guys and snickering at the pool rules is another route to go as well.
