I wish I knew what it was like to be a fan of a team who cared about the international market.... At least Braves know how to rebuild. Trade top MLB players for top prospects, draft well, and aggressively pursue to international players..... We have been drafting good....sorta trading for prospects, but not spending a dime on international prospects.

Gilbert Lara would disagree. The Brewers obviously will never be the spenders the dodgers are, and an international draft is the only way to correct this, but they do take their swings every now and then.

Just a blurb on Jean Carlos Carmona, previously connected to the Brewers.

The Fangraphs July 2 Sortable Board projects two players to sign with the Brewers, SS/2B Jean Carlos Carmona and OF Pablo Abreu (same players that have been linked to the Brewers previously).

For those that want to bypass the article and go straight to the board, here is the LINK.

The first thing that stuck out about Jean Carlos Carmona is that his name is a combination of two Dominican players that were implicated in having falsified their ages. Jean Carlos (Batista) chronicled in the movie Pelotero alongside Miguel Sano, and Fausto Carmona (Roberto Hernandez) who pitched six years with the Indians under a false identity and age.

Update from Badler:

Beyond those two, Venezuelan outfielder Anderson Melendez, Dominican shortstops Yancarlos Cruz and Victor Maria, and Venezuelan catcher Roberto Molina have all been linked to the Brewers for six-figure prices.

"Those two" being Carmona and Abreu. He also mentioned that Abreu may get more money than Carmona.

I did some looking and couldn't find anything, anyone know when these International signings are available via trades? Could they be included in this years trade deadline?

I'd have to believe with the new rule of June Draftees not being able to be included in a PTBNL trade until after the World Series would also be the rule here for International signees. Besides, none of them will see the field by the deadline, seeking one in a trade would be like, why didn't you just sign them?

FWIW, I can understand the Brewers not reaching on a high price bat and going with 6figure deals. Lara has yet to produce, Mallen/Pierre aren't doing much. Take the spread out the number of signees and hope to luck in on 1 or 2. Vs. putting all the money in to 1 player. I guess taking the route of acquiring these guys in trade when they're 18 and with some experience to go on is better to gamble on then just taking you're chances on 1 16year old.

Maybe with the lack of expecting to use all your Signing allotment dollars, the Brewers are saving up to give one of the slots of money in trade to improve on a deal.

So, who do we think is older, Jean Carlos Carmona or Thon Maker?

I think the bigger news is that the contracts they had with five players from the 2015-2016 signing period have been voided. Those players will retain their signing bonuses, but are free to sign with other clubs. The first $300K does not count towards a team's pools in the upcoming period.

Those are the guys to go after.

Only one, already mentioned above:

Another Venezuelan outfielder, Anderson Melendez, is a projectable 6-foot-2, 170 pounds, and scouts who liked him saw a line-drive bat in games with the ability to use the whole field and gap power that should improve as he puts on weight. He’s a fringy runner who will probably be a corner outfielder. The Brewers are expected to get Melendez.

I guess I assume the guys the Red Sox signed last year will now go to other big money teams if they are worth signing since they are free agents now. Don't expect the Brewers will be a factor on them. I guess I could be wrong though.

Their contracts have been voided, but they are not true free agents. Their bonuses count towards the 2016-2017 bonus pool, except for the first $300K. Not sure what the Brewers pool was, but if the top three guys only got ~$2M total I would think they would have some room to go above the $300K exempt limit.
