Miguel Angel Sano Drawing Attention

Miguel Angel Sano, a 15 year-old shortstop from the Dominican Republic, is coveted by all 30 teams according to Dejan Kovacevic of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.  He'll turn 16 in May.  The signing period for international free agents begins July 2nd.  Kovacevic says Sano could command a bonus of $3MM.

Kovacevic says the Pirates are one of the favorites for Sano.  GlobalPost has an informative video about the kid.  In the clip, Sano wears apparel representing the Blue Jays, Cubs, and Cardinals at various times, for what it's worth.  He was wearing an A's jersey when ESPN's Jorge Arangure Jr. and Luke Cyphers saw him.  Sano is not worried about proving he's 15 years old, saying in the video, "Let them investigate me."  To read a bit about his personality, check out this blog post.
