A third team has joined the Yankees and Mariners in pursuit of 17-year-old Dominican righty Rafael DePaula according to MLBTR contributor Blake Bentley. He reports that DePaula is scheduled to pitch in front of Padres' scouts and senior executives next week.
DePaula worked in the 92-93 mph range during a workout a few weeks ago, and reportedly has an offer from the Mariners in hand. Standing 6-foot-3, he is considered the equivalent of a first round draft pick and is in line for a seven-figure deal.
Come on HOuston please be you.
Not to be rude, but when was the last time that Houston spent big on an international amateur player?
You can expect the Jays to be kicking the tires on this kid.
Probably the Royals! If the Mariner’s are in on someone, Dayton Moore wants them!
Cards need all the help in the farm as they can. Probably will get a mil less than arguelles(sp) got from the royals
hopefully the mets, and it is one of their few strengths
