Edward Salcedo?

Postby Jake Taylor » Tue Nov 18, 2008 7:10 pm

I have been checking back on news about the Scott Boras supposed phenom prospect Edward Salcedo month after month finding no updates at all. Does anyone around have any information about Salcedo? When the news broke about him over a year ago, we were supposedly at the top of his list for a team to sign with. He even had a Hi-5 account with pictures of himself in an Indians uniform with the caption "my team".

I had heard that the MLB was perhaps looking to verify his age before he signed with anyone, but the international signing period went and I still found no new news about him.

Anything...?

I have no official news, but likely his contract demands and probable "age problem" made teams stay away from him. Maybe if all of this gets cleared up, he'll sign with a team next year, but chances are they won't pony up the money Boras had in mind.

Edward Sasquatch? He's a myth.

He wont be signed by anyone in the near future

Hes no phenom and age wise is a lot older than first reported

I am much more interested in Jose Moreno or Felix Perez.

Anyone with any info about Indians interest?

are those guys available next year? The Indians rarely pay big buck for these 16-year old phenoms. Not necessarily a bad thing, but one or two would be nice every now and then.

MLB | Perez being scouted
Mon, 17 Nov 2008 15:43:49 -0800

Jose de Jesus Ortiz, of the Houston Chronicle, reports Cuban OF Felix Perez is being scouted by several major league teams. He has not been cleared by the State Department to work in the United States, so he cannot sign with a team yet.

Obviously teams are waiting on clearance, but this could be a big boost to the farm system down the line.

Nothing on Salcedo. I spoke with someone in spring training with inside info on the subject between him and the Indians where he believed an announcement was coming that he was signed. Obviously, nothing has been announced now 8 months later....in fact, there is nothing on him in connection with the Indians or any other team. This could be another Kelvin Diaz situation where the verification of his vitals is a process that takes months and sometimes years.

Now wait a second..... We finally got sightings of this guy toward the end of the summer. I think he was in Arizona as part of the 'Instructs'.

Daz or Tony can elaborate more but if Diaz actually got stateside, I think we should remove the myth status to his existance.
