International News of Note

Alcides Pena made a big splash in the market with a surprise signing with Pittsburgh for $17.5M. My scouts tell me he could be a minor league player for part of the season and sent into the mouth of the lions at the ML level later this year. Will that happen remains to be seen. We see him as a weak SS/CF at best or an overly endowed 3B. Hitting well with medium power further highlights his abilities. Not bad for a guy that was asking a tremendous amount to start with.

Grade: A

Dover bit off on Aroldis Correa for $10.5M. He could have roids also as he doesn't have exceptional control.  Definitely might have the splits and pitches to have a successful ML career.

Grade: B+
