Maybe even including some of those real emotional ones!
Toronto Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos continued shaping the future of the franchise on Tuesday by acquiring seven international free agents from Central and South America.
“Our commitment to Latin America, our commitment to get the best available players in Latin America, has been in existence now for quite some time,” Marco Paddy, Toronto’s director of Latin America operations, said on an afternoon conference call.
The new arrivals include five 16year-olds (Mexican pitcher Roberto Osuna, pitcher Manuel Cordova and outfielders Wuilmer Becerra Jesus Gonzalez, all from Venezuela, pitcher Alberto Tirado from the Dominican Republic) and two 17-year-olds (Dominican pitchers Jairo Labourt and Yeyfry Del Rosario).
“Our search, in urgency, was to get the best available players that the market had to offer, that was the biggest thing,” Paddy said.
