MLB could be holding off on approving the Jairo Beras contract until closer to the new July 2 signing date to reduce the possibility some other D.R. youngsters suddenly age a year and become eligible for signing before July 2.

That would mean the Rangers would get Beras and all other D.R. kids would then be stuck with the July 2 parameters ($2.9m pool for signing international talent) and would be too late to be Berassed under the wire.
