Minor League Roundup 8/11/14

Recommended Posts

Wild Card    452

This is his second year of service time, so 2015 will be his third year and I would assume 2016 would be his first year of arbitration.

But I think the Blue Jays signed him as a major league free agent out of Cuba, no? Does arbitration and club control apply? I feel like his situation is different.

The deal Toronto gave him to sign him, maybe?

Bingo. He defected in 2009 and on April 13, 2010, Hechavarria signed a 4-year, $10 million contract with the Toronto Blue Jays

But I thought after that deal was finished he became a FA, not arb eligible. I guess I was wrong? How does that work?

I'm pretty sure he's subject to the same service time rules as every other player which means he would be minimum salary next year and then arb eligible in 2016, but perhaps I am mistaken.
