Notes:

Baseball America's Ben Badler released more information on Cardinals signee Carlos Matias.  He posted that as soon as the right-hander passes his latest visa background check he will receive his bonus of $1.5 million.  I later exchanged messages (via twitter) with Badler on the possibility of Matias being promoted to the states as soon as he's cleared.
