Unfortunately we're going through this shakeout period with regards to streaming and everyone thinks you're going to pay $10, $20, $50, $80 a month for their service. But most people are going to pick a few that best suit them and just say no to all the others. No, I'm not changing everything around and paying more just to get the one with MASN. But I would definitely pay $15 or whatever a month to watch just the O's.
Some more precise numbers from Jon Meoli at The Sun on the mid-range Dominican players.
I believe it is still policy not to announce the signing bonuses of Venezuelan players due to unrest in that country.
Orioles sign 17 International Free Agents
"The Orioles today announced a signing class of 17 international amateurs, including the club’s first two players signed for seven figures. Per industry sources, the club has contract agreements with catcher Samuel Basallo from the Dominican Republic for $1.3 million and with Venezuelan shortstop Maikol Hernández for $1.2 million.
The Orioles announced that 11 more from this group are six-figure agreements. Of the 17 agreements, 13 are from the Dominican Republic and four are from Venezuela
Catcher Samuel Basallo, L/R, 16, Dominican Republic
Basallo, once linked to the New York Yankees, got the largest signing bonus ever given to an international amateur by the Orioles. Basallo, who turned 16 on Aug. 13, has plus arm strength and some solid raw power. Some scouts have put a 60 grade on his arm. At 6-foot-3 and 198 lbs., it’s possible he could outgrow the catcher position.
Shortstop Maikol Hernández, R/R, 17, Venezuela
At 6-foot-4 and 175 lbs., Hernández has several impressive tools with a strong arm and power. He’s drawn some comparisons to bigger shortstops at young ages like Carlos Correa and Manny Machado. He was previously linked to St. Louis and Pittsburgh.
Six players, per industry sources, signed with the Orioles for bonuses between $300,000 and $400,000. Here is that group:
Outfielder Wilmer Feliciano, L/R, 16, Dominican Republic
He is a lefty batter with some solid raw power and it is believed got the third-highest bonus among this group.
