The Miami Marlins announced that they have signed Victor Victor Mesa and Victor Mesa Jr. Sources told MLB.com’s Jesse Sanchez. Victor Victor is expected to sign for more than $5 million, and Victor Jr. is expected to receive a bonus near $1 million.
There will be streaming a press conference to introduce the pair at Marlins.com beginning at 11am ET.
The Marlins and the Baltimore Orioles each have about $6.6 million of international bonus pool money, the most of any MLB teams so it wasn’t surprising that they were able to land the best international prospect.
Victor Victor slashed .354/.399/.539 for Matanzas in his last full season of play (2016-2017, when he was just 20) in Cuba’s Serie Nacional.
