Remember Rafael DePaula? Yeah, nobody does. I haven't the foggiest what's going on over on that front, but if you're someone who can only remember one international free agent at a time, here's a new name for you - Luis Heredia.
Heredia, 15, is a 6-foot-4 right-hander who has been described in several publications as having four "plus" pitches, in the scouting vernacular, meaning the potential for all of those -- fastball, changeup, slider and curveball -- to above-average at the Major League Baseball level.
Theare among the teams listed as being in pursuit. Heredia will be eligible to sign on July 2nd. When I was 15, I was just getting away from clip-on neckties, so it's safe to say that Heredia's an overachiever.
Luis Heredia wasn't alive during the baseball strike.
