Gabriel Cenas Rumors


Blue Jays Sign Venezuelans Cardona, Cenas

The Blue Jays signed amateur free agents Adonis Cardona and Gabriel Cenas, according to the team.  Cardona, a right-handed pitcher, and Cenas, a third baseman, will begin in the Dominican Summer League.  The Blue Jays have been aggressive on international free agents under GM Alex Anthopoulos, bidding on Aroldis Chapman and signing Adeiny Hechavarria.

News of Cardona's deal first broke in May from ESPN's Keith Law, but the pitcher could not be officially signed until July 2nd.  According to this Shi Davidi tweet, Anthopoulos confirmed the Cardona signing was for $2.8MM - a record for a Venezuelan amateur, according to Baseball America's Ben Badler.  The Badler link also contains a scouting report.  Davidi also learned from Anthopoulos that Cenas was signed for $700K.
