Pedro from Haina, Domincan Republic signed with the San Juan Elephant Seals for a 24.5 million dollar bonus. Pedro is a SS who if fully developed will be a presence at the plate. With potential to bat .300 + conistently and hit 15-25 HRs a season. And with the ability to steal 30+ bases Campos will be a valuable asset fpr the Seals. Not to mention he will be a stud in the field.

Born: Havana, CU
Position(s): SS/IF/OF/DH
View Hardball Dynasty Profile

Pedro of Havana, Cuba signed by the Norfolk Needlefish for a signing bonus of 13.9 million is a defensive SS with ability to hit. When reaching his potential Guillen will struggle vs right handed pitchers, and hit very well vs the lefties. He has potential to be a good contact and a slightly power hitter. His L/R may hold im down. But Pedro has potentially an eye for the ages. He could hit anywhere from .280 to .330

Miguel Maranon
Salt Lake City
The Salt
Age: 19B/T: R/R
Born: Velasco, CU
Position(s): P (SP1)
View Hardball Dynasty Profile

Miguel Maranon of Velasco, Cuba signed by the Salt Lake City The Salt for a 12.6 million dollar bonus is a SP with potential to turn into a star. Miguel will have great control, dominate right handed hitters, has electirc speed, and a dominating forkball. Vs the righties Miguel will do very well, but having only 1 dominating pitch, and then 1 good pitch Miguel could struggle, but doubtful. Look for Miguel to be a future #2

Felipe Johnson
Age: 20B/T: L/L
Born: Mexicali, MX
Position(s): 1B
View Hardball Dynasty Profile

Felipe Johnson from Mexicali, Mexico was signed by the Jacksonville Alcoholics for a 12 million dollar bonus is a future MVP canidate. Felipe could bat .350 with 50 HRs at the peak of his career. With a great eye and great ability to hit lefties, and a good ability to hit righties you can gurnatee Felipe Johnson will be a household name in years to come. Felipe does have a suspect glove but he wasnt signed as a SS so GM frankum has no worries.

Tony Carrasco
Killer Whales
Age: 18B/T: R/R
Born: Distrito Nacional, DO
Position(s): LF
View Hardball Dynasty Profile

Tony Carrasco of Distrito Nacional, Dominican Republic was signed by the Portland Killer Whales for a 11.5 million dollar bonus is a LF with below average defense. But like Felipe Johnson, he was signed for his bat not his glove. Tony has potential to bat .320+ with 30+ HRs every season. Tony has great contact, power, L/R splits eye and baserunning abilities so he will be a valuable piece in the future for the Killer Whales.

Omar Andujar
Kansas City
Age: 18B/T: L/L
Born: Ingenio Quisqueya, DO
Position(s): CF
View Hardball Dynasty Profile

Omar Andujar of Ingenio Quisqueya, Dominican Republic was signed by the Kansas City Monarchs to a 9.7 million bonus. Omar Andujar is an interesting case, He looks destined to play 2B as his arm strength and accuracy are not quite CF material. Omar has great L/R splits but his actual hitting abilities will keep at or below the .280 range. Omar is a base stealer thoguha nd you can expect him to steal 30+ bases. The biggest kock on Omar is his personalit. He is not a hard worker, and his career will suffer due to his lacksidasical personality.

Sammy Morales
Brown Bears
Age: 18B/T: R/R
Born: Central Cunagua, CU
Position(s): P (SP5)
View Hardball Dynasty Profile

Sammy Morales was signed out of Central Cunagua, Cuba for 4.5 million dollars by the Louisville Brown Bears. Sammy Morales is destined to be a long reliever. His stamina will not allow him to be a SP past AAA. Sammy does have great control and good to great splits. With 3 potentially great pitches Sammy could be a valuable piece for the Bars as the first man out of the pen.

Juan Ramirez
Age: 18B/T: S/R
Born: Agua Prieta, MX
Position(s): C
View Hardball Dynasty Profile

Juan Ramirez signed by the Chicago Cubs for 3.8 million dollars out of Agua Prieta, Mexico. Juan has the potential to bat .300+ with 50 HRs. Although his pitch calling is low, his power may be too much too pass up on, in having him in the lineup.

Luis Nunez
Age: 18B/T: L/L
Born: Guayubin, DO
Position(s): P (SP1)
View Hardball Dynasty Profile

Luis Nunez signed by the Atlanta Shockers for 3.3. million dollars out of Guayubin, Dominican Republic. Nunez has the ability to potentially be an average ML starter. With great splits and 2 great pitches Luis could develop nicely. But having low control is a hamper in his development.

And now lets review the best and worst signigns for the money.

Worst Signing For The Money

Valerio Guillen
St. Louis
Crazy Horses
Age: 18B/T: R/R
Born: Mao, DO
Position(s): SS/IF/OF/DH
View Hardball Dynasty Profile

Valerio Guillen was signed by the St. Louis Crazy Horses for 14 million dollars out of Mao, Dominican Republic. Why was this such a bad signing? Besides the fact Guillen will never make the Major League, he was involved in a scandal where he faked his name as Jose Pujols. Why is this a big deal? Because Jose Pujols was a top SS prospect who had been killed in a car accident, but the ML teams were not informed. Leaving Guillen an opening into a 14 millio dollar bonus. Needless to say there are current lawsuits going on, but it is believed that the Crazy Horses are losing, and will be stuck with the contract.

Best Signing For The Money

David Mendoza
Kansas City
Age: 18B/T: L/L
Born: Villa Altagracia, DO
Position(s): P (SP2)
View Hardball Dynasty Profile

David Mendoza signed for 2.9 million dollars out of Villa Altagracia, Dominican Republic by the Kansas City Monarchs. Why was this such a good signing? For 2.9 million dollars the Monarchs get a player who will potentially dominate batters form both sides of the plate. Although control is a concern, Mendoza does have 3 great pitches combines with very hgih velocity.
