International Notes: Roy, Beras

Earlier today we heard 26-year-old Adonis Garcia is drawing interest. Here are more links on the international market:

  • The Mariners signed French left-hander Alexandre Roy, Ben Badler of Baseball America reports. The 6’1” 16-year-old is a ‘project’ who can reach 88 mph with his fastball and offers a developing change-up.
  • Senior VP for baseball operations Kim Ng says MLB hopes to resolve the Jairo Beras issue soon, Yahoo’s Tim Brown tweets. The Rangers agreed to terms with the Dominican teenager yesterday, but MLB and competing executives believe he is 16 and therefore too young to sign.
