ESPN.com's Jorge Arangure Jr. updates us on three international prospects:
- The Mariners and Rangers are interested in signing Guillermo Pimentel. Arangure hears that the Mariners could sign the left-handed slugger with a $2MM bonus.
- The Brewers, Indians and Padres are the leading candidates to sign outfielder Jose Alberto Pena.
- Jose Julio Ruiz, who defected from Cuba, is working towards becoming a free agent. Some say Ruiz, 25, resembles an older, less powerful version of Dayan Viciedo.
