According to MLB.com’s Joe Frisaro, the Fish have had scouts in the  Dominican Republic all weekend watching free agent first baseman Jose Dariel Abreu, who defected from  his native Cuba one month ago and established residency in Haiti  while waiting to be cleared to negotiate with major league teams.
He still hasn’t been given that clearance and is not expected to settle with a big league club until right around the December MLB Winter Meetings. The 26-year-old slugger is thought to be seeking over $50 million in guaranteed money.
