According to a source, the Marlins received $500K in International pool money from Astros in today's deal.


Giron was a J2 signee last year as a 16-year old who received a $350K bonus from the Marlins. This year in the DSL he hit .255/.331/.362 in 67 games with 12 SBs in 20 attempts. Listed at 5'10" 190 lbs, he's described by BA as "a corner outfielder with average speed that will likely slow down as he ages and an average arm that could tick up once he gets stronger".

De Paula was signed as a 17-year old by the Marlins on 4/26/17. This past season was his 2nd year in the DSL and he posted a 1.29 WHIP in 44.1 innings with 45 Ks. Listed at 6'3" 175 lbs.

A pair of righty DSL pitchers out of Venezuela were recently released--18 year old Wender Oberto and 19 year old Jose Antonio Hernandez. Had  been in the system 2 and 3 years respectively w/o making it stateside. Don't recall either player getting sizable bonuses when signed.

RHP Yoanys Quiala has been released. Not surprising at all considering his ineffectiveness and the season-ending PED suspension. $794K bonus spent on him back in 2015.

OF Carlos Diaz has appeared on the wrong side of the transactions list. The 14th-rounder (2017) out of Puerto Rico was like Yoanys Quiala suspended for PED use this past season and has been largely ineffective with the bat since being drafted.

And also like Quiala now finds himself released.

How the Canadian became a Wyvern.

Fascinating ... I was just doing my annual attempt to forecast MiLB assignments and most of those guys (and only a few others) had me completely stumped.  Luis Encarncion was the only real surprise, though I did have Carlos Hiraldo pretty confidently slated for Fayetteville.  The fact that the organization already had him at AA may have played a part in their decision ... up or out. 

A few more I had trouble placing include Andy Pineda (Corpus as OF#4?), Alfredo Angarita (super sub, but at what level?), Gabriel Valdez (maybe Corpus bullpen?), Carlos Sanabria (Fayetteville? Corpus?) and Brian De La Cruz (I can't find room for him above Fayetteville, and not as a starter there; but he seems to have shown all he can show to that level).

Anyway ... all will be revealed shortly.
