The Brewers have added another prospect from Venezuela. Meet catcher Jhonny Cabrera. @mlbpipeline https://atmlb.com/2z1RZFF

Cabrera becomes the youngest player in the organization, born 6/5/2002. Though he'll lose this title in the next few weeks when Eduardo Garcia signs.

If Villalobos was affiliated with an LMB team, and Ben Badler made it seem like he was, he can't sign until MLB lifts its moratorium on signing players from the LMB. No one seems to know how long that will be.

Is there a breakdown of all the signings (Rankin’s if they have them) and bonuses if known, somewhere?

Usually there is someone who compiles a breakdown. Would be a lot easier than reading through a whole thread. I’m lazy...

Haven’t seen any reports on what Eduardo Garcia got as a bonus. I assume around a mil as was with Fernandez and Jarabba?

I was out of the loop on the changes to the international signings when they happened, but it seems like we are really benefitting from them, correct?

Our strategy the last few years seems to be to pass on the higher end bonus guys and instead take about 3 who are sitting around the top 20 area with bonus money equivalent to a 2nd round pick.

Really excited to see how guys like Carlos Rodriguez and Pablo Abreu pan out, as it seems like we haven’t had a decent international OF prospect since Nelson Cruz (?!).

Not Cruz...

December 16, 2004: Nelson Cruz traded by the Oakland Athletics with Justin Lehr to the Milwaukee Brewers for Keith Ginter.

Wily Peralta & Orlando Arcia are on a very short list of signed & developed talents to be considered high prospects & reach the big. You hope with the continued push in the international market that we will see a lot more guys shot up the ranks

The Orioles are apparently on the verge of signing 22-year old Cuban Victor Victor Mesa, the top international free agent. Interesting how they went from not doing the whole International thing to signing the best player available. Mesa is likely to immediately be a top 100 prospect.

Edit: Now reports from Jesse Sanchez that he does not have a deal in place and hasn’t been declared a free agent yet. Also notes he is planning an open showcase for all 30 teams.

Edit #2: Marlins signed him.

Baltimore did just make a trade for additional international bonus pool money.

That's an interesting strategy - instead of investing in a lot of scouting, just take your entire pool and go after the top couple of guys, overpaying if you have to.

“So far, no new protocol agreement is in place. That means Fernando Villalobos, a 16-year-old lefthanded-hitting catcher with Mexico City who is Baseball America’s No. 34 international prospect in the 2018 class and was expected to sign with the Brewers, is among the Mexican players stuck in limbo.”

May lose Villalobos depending on how this Mexican League mess works out. All signings are suspended. Mexican teams were lying about percentage they were letting players keep. That factors how much a signing cost against signing bonus. Cubs signed kid for 1.2 million. 75% was suppose to go towards posting cost. That team lied & gave him 50%. So on record he was suppose to get like 300k, he received 600k. Cubs were allowed to go over 300k on any player

9/15/18 Milwaukee Brewers signed free agent RHP Edinson Gonzalez to a minor league contract.

http://m.brewers.mlb.com/player/683436/edinson-gonzalez

6'1/163 Pitcher out of the DR, didn't see this anywhere else and appears to be an international signing...

MLB announces new player transfer agreement with the Mexican League. All players at least 25 years old or who have six years of professional experience will be eligible to sign with an MLB club. Deal sets exactly how much Mexican League teams will get from clubs when players sign

MLB teams will pay the players' Mexican League club a "release fee" of 15% of the total guaranteed value of the contract if the player is signed a major league contract, or 35% of the signing bonus if the player is signed to a minor league contract

Mexican League clubs may also release players to sign prior to turning 25 or reaching six years of professional experience if they choose

Does this clear the way for us to sign Villalobos?

A sentence from that article... “Another prominent Mexican League prospect who had been caught in limbo, catcher Fernando Villalobos, has been expected to sign with the Brewers. He ranked as Baseball America's No. 34 international prospect for July 2 last year in the current 2018-19 signing period.

If I am reading the article correctly I believe Villalobos is now free to sign with the Brewers.





Also, Ben Badler doesn’t believe the Cubs have the remaining International Bonus Pool space to sign RHP Florencio Serrano who they had originally agreed to a $1.2 million deal with before the ban was enacted last summer.
