International Signing

The Pawtucket Red Sox are all smiles as they captured a prize in the International market by signing Kolten Mota. It didn't take much, $20M and a ML contract. They aren't worried about his clock as he should be ready in a season or two in the minors. What are they so proud about? A constant hard hitting thumper for the lineup. Unfortunately he doesn't play 1B all that well which was a turnoff  to the NL clubs and probably be relegated to the DH spot. Luckily the Red Sox were not in a financial crisis but signing anymore International prospects looks pretty bleak at this point.
