No, but the IBI's Jake Dungan says not to be quick to overlook the minor league signings.

Around the Farm: December 21, 2013
The winter ball season is starting to wrap up. Most of the teams will take a small break this week for Christmas and then finish their regular season next weekend and then those that qualify for the playoffs will move on while the rest will go home for the winter. Carlos Santana and Jesus Aguilar look to be on playoff bound teams, but whether or not they play in the playoffs remains to be seen. In any case, both were in action on Saturday, and both impressed once again.
