    The Red Sox have cut back in their scouts in Latin America. For Example in Venezuela who they had 5 scouts they only have 3 scouts as Luis Prieto and Julio Guevera arn't not longer in their organization. Juan Pringle also isn't in the organization so they don't have a scout in Panama, or in Aruba as Derwin Ruiz is also gone. I speculate that Curacao scout Antonio Simon will scout in Aruba. In Mexico Jose Cabrera has been replaced by Jack Pierce. Europe scouting coordinator Mike Lord has added the same title in Mexico.

    A couple more names to follow for the July second 2010 signing phase.

    Joan Urena missed by one day been available to sign in 2010, as his birthday is September 1. The 6-1 180 switch hitting third baseman is a good hitter with power and speed, play good D and has a strong arm.

    Sammy Vasquez is 5-10 158 a switch hitting SS makes good contact with the ball and has some power, has very good hands and range.

    Both of this players are from the same home town of Santiago in the Dominican and have represented the Island in international events.

    According to International scouts the Red Sox is very interested in Venezuelan outfielder Carlos Tocci. I talked about Tocci briefly earlier in this thread, but his main tool is being + runner a 6.60 runner.

    In a Non scouting or signing note, but DSL Red Sox related. The Sox are switching Curtney Doran from the outfield to be a pitcher. Doran from Curacao is 6-0 185 R/R and 19 yrs. As outfielder in 2009 and 2010 in the DSL hit for 214 and 225 average with 2 HR in each season, a RF known for his +arm. In addition Arubian second baseman Derward Ruiz who played for the Sox DSL in 2009 and 2010 has been released.

    Hey Scaffolds, I want your opinion about Michael Ynoa (Oak) and Noel ArgŁelles (KC). Both didn't pitch at all in 2010. Was it a good decision by the Red Sox to not sign them, or compete to sign them? Ynoa is 19 now and has pitched like 9 innings in 2-3 years in pro ball. Whats the matter? And how about Noel Arguelles? Does he project as a frontline SP?

    First of sorry for taking so long in getting back to you, have been out of town. like you know souting isn't a exact science is based on tools, ceiling and projections and both of thiis pitchers have a lot talents.The Red Sox where very intersted in both of them if the money was right. You are right Ynoa has had a lot of health issues since he signed. I haven't follwed him this year so don't know if he is pitching or not, as for Aguelles he had shoulder issues after he signed, don't believe that there was anything major with it, he is pitching in South Atlantic league this eason. When a player or players doesn't work out because of injuries or talent the organiztions that didn't sign them, the ones that didn't spend all of that cash you could said made the right decision, so for now you could say that the Red Sox made the right decision, but just for now.

    The DPL is reporting that the Giants have signed Dominican LHP Enmaunel De Jesus for a $ 35,000 bonus (I like this signing) De jesus who is 6-1 185 is 17 yrs. Also signing was 20 yrs RHP Roberto Ramirez, also Dominican signed (Padres) for a $50, 000 bonus. This signing was after the show casing in May 7.

    Thanks. Ynoa was extremely hyped. But it seems he has been 2 years in XST since then. Arguelles is pitching extremely good in the minors right now. walking nearly nobody and striking out one batter per inning. The farm system of the Royals is ridiculous...Arguelles could be in the majors next year, along with Duffy, Montgomery etc.

    Well if you have a top 10 draft pick in 11 of the last 15 drafts (and a top 5 pick in 8 of them), you would kinda expect that. Then again, there's Pittsburgh...
    Watching Derek Jeter make 40 defensive plays and then watching Adam Everett make 40 defensive plays at the same position is sort of like watching video of Barbara Bush dancing at the White House, and then watching Demi Moore dancing in Striptease. (Bill James)

    Dustin Pedroia doesn't have the strength or bat speed to hit major-league pitching consistently, and he has no power. If he can continue to hit .260 or so, he'll be useful, and he probably has a future as a backup infielder. (Keith Law)

    The signing of Dominican second baseman Andres Garcia became official as the Red Sox open the 2011 DSL season with a win Saturday 28 against the Yankees #2 team. Garcia is 5-9 155 a 17 yrs R/R.

    There is Talk that the Sox have signed RHPs Jeffrey Fernandez and Leonel Vasquez, but need to confirm that.
