Paul Zhang was signed by the Kansas City Royals for $14.9M. How this kid escaped my reporting clutches is unknown, maybe KC was trying to keep him under wraps. The kid might be a lefty but should be a force at the ML level in time. Good control and very good splits combined with some misaligned pitches should confuse and zhing hitters. A very good buy if you ask me.
Mariano Diaz was signed by the the Mets for $1M. The seeming innocuous event doesn't look like much but enable the Low A team to have a little respect. Causing a sudden 23-9 outburst has made the rest of the team pick up their game.
