Intl Market

The Helena Hot Pockets slipped in a $4.2M bid to claim Aneury Vega.  Listed as a LF, which is a stretch as he looks more like a strong 1B which isn't all that bad. That however in itself may have turned off several suitors. His speed isn't earth shattering but could steal a few bases along the way especially in hit and run situations. Good eye and contact will go a long way and his splits can seriously beat up left handed pitching. Light in the quantum power physics and lazy right split could be another deterrent for his cheap price along with the recently completed draft.

Compared to his contemporaries was well under priced. A .270 - .290 average is possible with 15 dingers and 15 stolen bases. Well done Hot Pockets!
