Oscar Colas OF LHP - Cuba


Recommended Posts

According to Jeff Passan

Outfielder/pitcher Oscar Colás, one of the best prospects to emerge from Cuba in years, has defected and will seek a deal with a major league team, sources familiar with his plans tell ESPN. Colás, 21, played in Japan last year and hit .302/.350/.516. He’s a LHP up to 95, too.

Is he eligible to sing with a team during this offseason or does he have to wait until next offseason?

He is eligible this season but could wait until July to get the more money since a lot of teams already spent there money.

Can't wait for the "Oscar and His New Teammates" hit single.  🙂  (Hey I'm the worst person for typos here so just having some fun.  At least you didn't drop the "g" at the end of the word though that would be even funnier).

And according to Rotoworld's blurb:

Quote

Jeff Passan of ESPN reports that Cuban outfielder/pitcher Oscar Colas has defected and is seeking a contract with a major league team.

Colas, 21, played in Japan this past season and batted .302/.350/.516 with 11 home runs over 66 games. The left-hander is also a pitcher and some believe he could make it as a two-way player, although other believe his future is as an outfielder. Passan notes that while Colas could sign during the current international signing period, he might wait until July when teams' bonus pools reset.

What I find interesting is his age.  Older Cuban players have been notorious at times with their lack of discipline at the plate.  Getting one still young where he can learn how to play MLB style at that younger age might let him avoid that trap.
