Ben Badler ofBaseball America, who covers the international prospect world better than anyone,has a lengthy new articleabout Cuban sluggerJose Abreuand his green light to sign after being cleared by MLB.
Quite a few teams have been linked to Abreu by various reports, but Badler rates the Rangers as his most likely landing spot. It makes sense, as first base has been a weak spot and the Rangers have certainly shown a willingness to shell out big money for high-profile international players inYu Darvish. Badler also notes that the Rangers have a good relationship with Abreus agency.
