    The Mariners have signed Dominican outfielder Helsin Martinez for $2 million.

    Rangers came to play today

    #Rangers signed Dominican prospect Nomar Mazara on Saturday for a record $5 million bonus, report ESPNdeportes.com
    per Enrique Rojas' twitter.

    More on Mazara:

    Mazara is a wild card. He has tremendous raw power from the left side, but the emphasis is on raw, since most scouts surveyed don’t consider him in the class of Guzman or Hernandez. Mazara, who is represented by Ivan Noboa, doesn’t play in any of the top leagues in the Dominican Republic and has been showcased cautiously. Several teams have said they haven’t been able to see Mazara play much in game situations (a red flag in itself), noting that Mazara will often take batting practice without facing live pitching. Those who have seen him play in games have strong reservations about his ability to make consistent contact. Still, some team will likely take a gamble on his power potential.

    say goodbye to the intl market for small market teams like the yankees. it is quite obvious that they cannot compete with deep pocketed bullies from the big cities out east.

    How accurate are the signing bonuses? I'm surprised the Rangers have committed $8+M to only two prospects.

    Cubs Sign Enrique Acosta For $1.1 Million

    Posted Jul. 2, 2011 12:44 pm by Ben Badler


    The Cubs have signed Dominican shortstop Enrique Acosta for $1.1 million.
    Acosta, 16, is a 6-foot-1, 180-pound righthanded hitter who is considered to have one of the top bats this year in Latin America, though he'll likely move off the position, either to a corner outfield spot or possibly third base.
    Baseball America subscribers can read a full scouting report on Acosta and more of the top international prospects for this year.

    Re: 2011 International Free Agent Thread

    not as surprised as some were when the yankees committed like 40m to 2 relievers

    Re: 2011 International Free Agent Thread

    KC is continuing to upgrade there farm system, they got the best position player in the draft and the top rated IFA guy this yr, there going to be a very good team in 3-5 yrs

    and Wow Texas spending over 8 m on 2 guys there stepping on the gas.

    Yankees no where to be seen, with as talented as this class is supposed to be i can't tell u how disspapointing that is. Unless there saving all there money to make a run at Darvish

    Relax. Yankees do their own thing in IFA, and are usually pretty good at it. And what the Rangers are doing is stupid IMO. Poor allocation of resources.

    I agree. They're were only the second largest spender in IFA last year. Poor small market Yankees.

    Amazing isn't it? The Yankees are one of the better teams in regard to IFA, but some of their own fans doubt them. The Yankees learned from years past from their mistakes that some teams are making now with overpaying prospects. Ynoa still hasn't pitched this year. He's 20 years old in a couple of months.

    the Yankees could spend $100 mil on the IFA, and someone would still say "why not $101?" this happens every year

    3/5 of Roberto Osuna RHP, Manuel Marcos OF, Adalberto Mondesi SS, Luis Reynoso SS, miguel Andujar 3B + the talent we haven't heard of would be a good year!
