The Brewers have reportedly signed SS Antonio Pinero, who was one of the kids the Red Sox had originally signed.

Piniero is from Venezuela, he is 6' 1", 155 - a switch hitter.

Pinero is hitting a meek .198/.258/.198 for the Red Sox' 2nd DSL team, though he does have 7 SB in 8 attempts and not bad BB/K rates.

Pinero signed for 375,000. does anyone have any information on him with regards to how he was rated last season. i only could find he wasn't a top 30 player.

This sums it up in terms that the layman can understand:

SI Wire said:
“The Red Sox skirted the $300,000 threshold by packaging highly regarded prospects with lesser ones, paying both similarly and allowing the players’ agent to give the lion’s share of the money to the better prospect,” Yahoo’s Jeff Passan reports.

That’s the only thing Chicago’s good for: to tell people where Wisconsin is.
-- Sigmund Snopek

Wow, that seems like a big risk for a minimal gain... These signings always seem like such a long shot and they are signing lower value prospects anyway. Now they lost two full years of signings: their restricted signings last year and their full allotment next year.

I wouldn't mind signing one or both of these guys before next years international signing period begins.

Very interesting take on MLB rules as they pertain to Venezuela and scout safety:

Time For MLB To End Rules That Jeopardize Safety Of Scouts

“Someone is going to get killed. It’s just a matter of time, and it’s on MLB when it happens, because they’re the ones who created these rules. They haven’t thought this through to any degree where they have any regard for the human lives of scouts.”

Interesting article. I wonder if it's time to prohibit signing international free agents until they are at least 17. That will give teams more time to build a longer evaluation on prospects, and give teams one more year until they have to decide whether to protect on the 40-man-roster. As it stands now, teams have to figure out whether to protect international signees who are still in A-ball.

In the U.S. I believe kids are ineligible for the draft unless they have graduated HS. I don't recall anyone recently being drafted who isn't at least 17 years old, and it is rare that someone graduates HS who isn't at least 17. Why should 16-year-old international players be able to sign multi-million dollar contracts but 16-year-old U.S. kids can't unless they have graduated HS?
