Minors 6/20

Blake Beavan in Frisco and Robbie Ross in Spokane, with a Font start mixed in, interesting night.

And then there's this:

Pimentel Saga

First, left-handed slugger Guillermo Pimentel was supposed to be a lock to sign with the Texas Rangers. Now, as was reported in La Esquina a couple weeks ago, he is linked to the Seattle Mariners.

Apparently, the prospect has yet to make up his mind, according to trainer Adolfo Fria.

"We have Pimentel on the market," Fria said. "There are offers but we have not signed with anyone. I have no agreement with anyone. But Seattle and Texas are the most interested."

Fria said he personally dropped off Pimentel at the Mariners' academy on Sunday. Pimentel is expected to stay with the Mariners in Villa Mella until Saturday. Beyond that point, Fria said he had no plans for Pimentel to visit other teams.

Several sources now expect Pimentel to sign with the Mariners with a bonus in the neighborhood of $2 million. But it might be too soon to count out the Rangers. The Latin American market is built on relationships and Fria has dealt with the Rangers in the past.

Several months ago, Fria confirmed that the Rangers signed his 18-year-old son Andres, an undrafted centerfielder who attended high school in New Jersey, for a generous $75,000 bonus. That type of bonus is typically given to a player drafted in Rounds 8-10 of the amateur draft.

That was posted yesterday.
