Salcedo to sign with the Braves?
Eduardo Salcedo, an international prospect the Yankees were rumored to be interested in back in 2008, is expected to sign with the Atlanta Braves. Mark Bowman of MLB.com writes that the Braves and Salcedo are “nearing a deal,” which would effectively remove the 18-year old shortstop from the free agent pool. As I noted earlier today, Salcedo has been described as a five-tool player, though one of his tools, his speed, has been questioned in the past. Salcedo always sounded like a promising player, but I guess the Yankees can chase Adeiny Hechevarria instead.
