Rafael Perez made off with $22.2M of the Blue Jays cash reserves today. A quality pitcher that should become a respected starter in the future. Control, splits, velo and ground ball are just a few of the outstanding qualities. When it comes to pitch quality however, my scouts are a beer blind. My feeling is he has the pitches to go with the rest. A great signing.
Bartolo Martin signed with the Minnesota Twins for $10.4M. His control may need to be better than I am seeing for a quality starter. His splits and pitches seem rather reasonable for a lefty.
Miguel Toca signed for $8M with the Boston Red Sox. Considered a project player by my scouts. Could be a quality starter if projections are met however it will require some time.
