Today is International Signing Day, so consider this a thread for signings.
1. Adrian Rondon, ss, Dominican Republic
The combination of premium position, one of the most advanced game hitters on the market and projectable power from an athletic frame makes Rondon the No. 1 prospect for July 2. Or in Rondon’s case, July 7, which is his 16th birthday and the first date when he’s eligible to sign. With a price tag that figures to be in the neighborhood of $3 million, that means only a team with one of the biggest bonus pools or one that plans to ignore them completely is going to be able to get him. The Rays have scouted Rondon heavily and look prepared to shatter their international bonus pool and pay the maximum penalty to get him signed.
The Rays have indeed inked Rondon for $3.4 million.
John Sickels has a good thread with a summary of signings and bonus pools.
