BA: International Changes Begin With Registration System

Under MLB's new rules for international signings, today is the registration deadline for 16-year-old international prospects who want to be eligible to sign with a MLB club during the signing period beginning this July 2nd. The linked piece is a good rundown on the (moderately confusing) process from Baseball America's Ben Badler. It also goes into some of the possible negative ramifications of the change. Badler has been on a roll lately - his piece today on Dominican prospects switching entire families in order to perpetuate age fraud is also quite interesting, and worth a read.
