Hi Everyone. I hope you all don’t have a case of the Mondays, because the farm system did tonight. It wasn’t smiles times for the Cards affiliates.
So let’s talk about some 16 year old kids in Latin America!
We all know about the Cards interest in OF Wagner Mateo, covered here and by dgoold. The Cardinals recently worked out (as covered by AZ) the bell of the ball SS Miguel Angel Sano, who is all over the internet as of late.
Here’s a few more names of players that are linked to the Cardinals, however tenuous of a link.
- LHP Victor Payano from the DR is 6′ 4″ at 15 years old, he throws 85-88 with standard slider and change. He’s strongly linked to Colorado and may cost more than $600k.
- LHP Edgar Ferrera from the DR who recently hit 94 mph and is angling for a greater than $600k bonus.
- 3B Chesler Cuthbert from Nicaragua is a big strong power hitting 3Bman who is looking for a bonus greater than $600k as well.
