Quick glance at Sano

Hey, this is my first post here.  Really enjoy the site, posts and commentary.  Anyway, nothing like an update on a missed international signing to hopefully generate a few comments.

Sano, at 17 years and not even 2 months, posted a .344/.463/.547 line in 64 AB's with the Twins DSL team, adding 14 walks (listed at 3B).  He's now up in the GCL, playing in his second game this afternoon.  

Over at Baseball Prospectus, Sano was mentioned in Kevin Goldstein's Future Shock article on the Top 11 prospects still in the minors (as the last prospect of nine potential #11 prospects).  http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=11354

Sure the Bucs lost out on Sano, but what were his projections during the negotiations?  AA at 19?  Will the lack of Sano's signing motivate the front office to increase the international signing budget, etc?  Do the international prospects sign mainly for money, is it more based on the relationship build with the regional scout, or organizational reputation?

Also, for Pirates prospects in the DSL like Jodaneli Carvajal (18 yrs, 2B, .307/.395/.416 in 101 ABs) or Alen Hanson (17 yrs, 3B, .337/.389/.471 in 104 ABs), what is the projected advancement to the GCL, low-A?

Kind of general questions, comments, but I'd be interested in any feedback.  Thanks!
