Today is the beginning of the international signing period. Players that are 16 can begin signing today and ones that turn 16 before the season is over can begin signing on their birthdays.
Sam Lecure was placed on the DL (minor league DL is 7 days) with a strained knee. Hopefully its nothing serious.
The Reds apparently offered Michael Iona a 5 million dollar MLB contract and he still turned them down to sign with the A’s for 4.5 million and a regular contract. I have to say, I am glad he turned us down. Too much risk to give a 16 year old a MLB contract.
