The New York Yankees made their presence felt with an international spending spree on Wednesday, the first day international free agents could sign with teams.
According to industry sources, New York agreed to terms with several highly regarded international prospects, including shortstop Dermis Garcia, ranked No. 1 on MLB.com’s Top 30 International Prospects list for a $3 million signing bonus, along with Dominican third baseman Nelson Gomez (ranked No. 2) for $2.25 million, Dominican outfielder Juan DeLeon (No. 5) for $2 million, Venezuelan outfielders Jonathan Amundaray (No. 7) for $1.5 million and Antonio Arias (No. 9) for $800,000.
Additionally, sources indicate the Yankees also agreed to terms with Korean shortstop Hyo-Jun Park, ranked No. 13, for $1.1 million, along with Venezuelan shortstops Wilkerman Garcia (No. 14) for $1.35 million and Diego Castillo (No. 16) for $750,000. The Yankees also agreed to terms with Venezuelan catcher Miguel Flames, ranked No. 25, for $1 million, and they added outfielder Frederick Cuevas from the Dominican Republic for $300,000.
In all, the Yankees spent more than $14 million on those players alone.
The Yankees have not confirmed the signings, but they could end up paying a high price for the young prospects….
Today is International Signing Day, so consider this a thread for signings.
The Rays have indeed inked Rondon for $3.4 million.
John Sickels has a good thread with a summary of signings and bonus pools.
