Sano's asking price: $5.5-7M?


While looking for info on the break in the Pirates' negotiations with Miguel Angel Sano, I ran across this nugget in a Baltimore paper:

Sano, a 16-year-old who is considered one of the prizes of the international free agent market, is believed to be seeking between $5.5 and $7 million. The Orioles have worked Sano out at their Dominican baseball complex on several occasions, though they've yet to make an offer to his agent, Rob Plummer.

"The agent has officially begun the process of negotiating with several clubs and we have not made an offer," said Orioles international scouting director John Stockstill, who wouldn't comment when asked how much money Sano is seeking. "The current asking price is north of where we currently have an interest in going." -Jeff Zrebiec, The Baltimore Sun

If that's true, then no wonder negotiations are at a standstill. Plummer's going to need a serious bidding war to get prices that high, and until Sano's age is verified, too many teams are going to hesitate. Hence, the soft-pedal on negotiations, and the late September forecast by Plummer .
