July 2 Prospect Update: De La Cruz, Peguero, Romero

Vicmar De La Cruz has received a seven-figure offer from the Indians, according to MLBTR contributor Blake Bentley. Teams cannot make official offers until the international signing period begins this July 2nd, but they're watching now. Bentley reports that the Indians are interested, but says De La Cruz will likely wait for more offers. 

This year's best July 2 shortstop, Martin Steylon Peguero, will be in position to demand a solid contract as he is this year's best July 2nd shortstop. Bentley reports that the Rangers, Mariners, Padres, Twins, Reds and Cubs have all expressed serious interest in Peguero, who has also received a seven figure offer. 

Wilmer Romero, an outfielder from Santo Domingo, has the toolset to demand seven figures, writes Bentley. The previous unknown stands 6'2'', has good speed, a strong arm and plus power.

    Hopefully the Jays can get in on Wilmer Romero as their outfield depth is a little vague in the minor leagues.

    “This year’s best July 2 shortstop, Martin Steylon Peguero, will be in position to demand a solid contract as he is this year’s best July 2nd shortstop.”

    Redundancy alert.

      How come nobody is ragging on the Indians for negotiating with this kid before the 2nd of July? Or is that only reserved for the Blue Jays?

    Because the Indians need any and every advantage they can get.
