The Atlanta Braves are the favorites to sign Venezuelan SS/3B Jose Perdomo during the 2024 international signing period. Big power & bat speed. Plus throwing arm. Solid athlete. Expected to receive one of the biggest bonuses next winter. Consensus Top 3 guy in the 2024 class. pic.twitter.com/OWbrjfTRss

We don’t know much about these guys, but it’s ridiculous the Braves were punished for “international signing infractions” when every team has similar handshake agreements. We’ve seen these type of prospects turn into superstars, but some of them simply don’t pan out. Kevin Maitan is a name that comes to mind. Regardless, the Braves have the worst farm system in baseball right now, and international signings can help them get back in the saddle quickly.
