Connects Brewers to Erys Bautista, a switch-hitting LF/1B with good power potential, and Eduarqui Fernandez, an outfielder with good instincts and a decent feel for everything.

Switch-hitter with power?

I like that a lot. I think switch-hitters in general are undervalued, and to get one with power... that would be very good.

Maybe this has been covered elsewhere, but have the Brewers stated that it is actually an organizational strategy to target almost solely hitters with their bigger international bonuses, or is that just how it has seemed to work out the last few years?

More Information In Link Below including this brewer-specific note.

https://www.mlb.com/news/mlb-internatio ... =151437456

The Blue Jays, Brewers, D-backs, Mariners, Phillies, Rangers, Red Sox, Rockies, Tigers, Twins, and Yankees are expected to be aggressive in the upcoming signing period. The Cubs, Dodgers, Giants and Royals -- teams that will no longer be in the penalty for exceeding their past international bonus pool spending -- are also expected to be very active.

I’d love to make pitchers and catchers a priority. We seem to get a lot of middle infielders and athletic outfielders. Most likely, if we peeled back the onion, we are probably getting guys with links to our contacts and pouncing where we have that advantage.

I will say, probably due to Matt Arnold, we’ve done way, way better the last couple of years internationally. I think we are on a good track. I perceive a big uptick in our recent acquisitions. We did pick up Arcia in years past, and I suppose Wily Peralta, but the volume seems higher. We may reap some rewards in a few years. It doesn’t hurt that there’s a cap now so that we have our fair chance instead of watching Boston, NYY, Texas, Cubs, Cards and Dodgers get everybody. Our share is becoming at least more fair, and I think we have improved our scouting and contacts via Matt Arnold.

Almost all of the top prospects have been position players, which is why we haven't had big money pitching signings. Nobody has either. We did get a steal with Vasolotti.

The Brewers are going to be busy on July 2. So are the Phillies. Plus notes and videos on speedy twin shortstop prospects from Curacao:

The article links the Brewers to 3B Branlyn Jaraba, the top Colombian prospect. Offensive-first player, might need to move off of third.

Nothing else new.

More confirmation


12:43
Joe: Are the Brewers linked to any top July 2 guys?

12:45
Kiley McDaniel: A number of them, actually. I think I have them with 5 guys so far. Eduardo Garcia SS VZ is really young and I liked him at the MLB showcase, Branlyn Jaraba is 3B from Colombia that I liked a good bit as well

Looks like BBA opened up these articles as free on their website this morning.

Eduarqui Fernandez, Dominican Republic
Size: 6-2, 176, R-R
Trainer: Jaime Ramos
60 yards: 6.75 seconds
Games: 1-for-5, BB, 2 SO

Fernandez has a lean, projectable build and demonstrated a well-rounded skill set at the MLB international showcase. He showed the speed for center field along with a strong arm, and while he did drop one fly ball, he ran good routes with quick breaks off the bat. While several hitters took uneven BPs, Fernandez stood out for his ability to make consistent hard contact during his rounds. The Brewers are the frontrunners for Fernandez, who is expected to sign for just north of $1 million.

Fernando Villalobos, Mexico
Size: 6-0, 193, L-R
Trainer: Mexico City Red Devils
60 yards: 6.96 seconds
Games: 1-for-5, BB, SO

The only Mexican prospect at the showcase, Villalobos showed good hitters’ actions from the left side. Villalobos, 15, has a short, sweet swing that stays on plane through the hitting zone for a long time and made hard contact in BP. Villalobos runs well for a catcher, with near average speed underway. A former pitcher and third baseman, Villalobos did have difficulty with receiving at times—especially when hard-throwing but erratic righthander Starlyn Castillo was on the mound—but he did make some nice stops on balls in the dirt. The Brewers are connected to Villalobos.

Branlyn Jaraba, Colombia
Vitals: 6-2, 196, R-R
Trainer: Orlando Cabrera
60 yards: 7.07 seconds
Games: 1-for-4, 2 BB, 2 SO

Jaraba, a 15-year-old third baseman, is expected to be the top-paid player this year from Colombia, with the Brewers tied to him. While several hitters had uneven BPs, Jaraba stood out more than most. He made loud contact, using his strength to drive the ball well from center field over to his pull side.

In games, Jaraba showed a mature hitting approach, mostly staying within the strike zone without much swing-and-miss, and he narrowly missed a double on a line drive roped down the left field line that went foul by two feet. Jaraba has to work at his defense to stay at third base, but he was one of the more interesting offensive players at the showcase.

Eduardo Garcia, Venezuela
Vitals: 6-2, 156, R-R
Trainer: Jose Montero
60 yards: 7.08 seconds
Games: 0-for-6, 3 SO

Garcia doesn’t have a tool that sticks out right now, but that could change once he gets stronger. Eligible to sign when he turns 16 on July 10, Garcia is one of the youngest players in the class and has a lot of space to fill out a projectable frame with a thin lower half and stick in the middle of the infield. The Brewers are likely to sign Garcia.

I'm hoping for Erys Bautista, Villalobos, and Jaraba.

The updated International bonus pool allotments from MLB.com, 2018-19 international signing bonus pools set.

The Reds, Marlins, Brewers, Twins, Athletics and Rays have largest allotment, however the Reds and Athletics are restricted from spending no more than $300,000 on any individual prospect.
