International Free Agent Update

ESPN.com's Jorge Arangure relays the latest on a pair of international players with his Twitter account.

  • Cheslor Cuthbert, who agreed to terms over the weekend, will receive a bonus of about $1.2MM from the Royals.
  • The Rangers appear to be closing in on Jurickson Profar.
  • It looks like he'll receive a bonus of about $700k to play short.
  • He could probably have received more if he'd signed as a pitcher, but he doesn't want to pitch.

Our own Mike Axisa questioned Baseball America's Ben Badler about some other international players over at River Ave. Blues:

  • It looks like top Latin catching prospect Gary Sanchez will sign with the Yankees for about $3MM.
  • The Mariners seem to be the favorites to sign Guillermo Pimentel.
  • Ugueth Urbina's son, Juan, will likely sign with the Mets.
  • Badler says Miguel Angel Sano would have gone somewhere between fourth overall and the end of the first round if he'd been eligible in this month's draft.
