International Market Place


Wagner Mateo and Eladio Moronta, both represented by Edgar Mercedes, will be having workouts in the October to showcase talents and hopefully sign minor league contracts.  Mateo lost his contract with the St. Louis Cardinals in September, while Moronta was reinstated by the MLB after serving a suspension for falsely presenting documents stating he was 16.  Moronta will be turning 21 in December.
