Miami Marlins is close to confirming signatures of highly rated Cuban prospects Victor Victor Mesa and his brother Victor Mesa Jr., according to several reports.
As El Nuevo Herald reported for the first time, referring to a source, Victor Victor Mesa will receive a $ 4 million plus signing bonus, while Victor Mesa Jr. get a bonus close to $ 1 million. Both players are outfielders.
Marlins on Saturday announced a press conference on Monday morning, but the team gave no details than CEO Derek Jeter and the president of the baseball business Mike Hill would be present.
Old Victor Victor Mesa, the leading international freeman, began playing in Cuba’s top league of 16. His 1
7-year-old brother is a switch-hitter who played for Cuba’s 18U national team. Both Cuba left last spring to run large league careers.
El Nuevo Herald also reported pots Sandy Gaston, who also worked for scouts earlier this month, is likely to write with either Baltimore or Tampa Bay.
