    24 or 25? Color me skeptical. When did he defect?
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Jocketty: We don't have a deal.

    http://marksheldon.mlblogs.com/archi...lix_perez.html

    "We don't have a deal," Jocketty told MLB.com. "We're one of several clubs still talking to him. We're hoping to get it resolved in the next two or three days. He is a kid we've been pursuing for quite a while."

    This is from baseball america, in Auguest of 2008.
    http://www.baseballamerica.com/blog/prospects/?p=1615

    Perez is a raw teen talent who has spent parts of two seasons in Cuba’s Serie Nacional, batting a light .271. Torres, who represented such big leaguers as Yoslan Herrera, Jose Contreras, Yuniesky Betancourt and most recently Alexei Ramirez, admitted Perez was raw but said he had five-tool talent.

    I think I saw $550k somewhere on Redszone.

    Also a strong comp probably on the other side of table.

    Although a raw Alexei Ramirez would be a scary sight.

    Well, I didn't mean he was a "raw Alexei Ramirez" just that he was similar to Alexei when he came over.

    Ramirez was 26 when he signed with the Sox, and skipped the minor leagues. Seems like the best comparison to me.

    Yea I was thinking more along the lines of a raw Yunel. Who knows its all speculation anyways so does it matter if we are correct? lol nope. Hopefully hes more like Yunel than Alexei though.

    From Jorge Arangure's twitter:

    because of his age and defensive ability would not shock me to see him in the majors this year

    Might be a guy the Reds would like to pair with Chapman in AAA. Both are from Cuba, and could help each other with homesickness that has a tendency to hit players from far away lands. Just speculation on my part.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    Some more stuff on Perez from Cubanballplayers.com.

    Félix Pérez is looking for a second chance

    Ex Isla player Félix Pérez earned great reviews when he hit the longest ball anyone has seen a player hit a ball at the Yankees complex. Pérez blasted the first pitch he saw sending the ball over the building in right field.

    The next day, he led off with a home run at the Cubs complex

    This seems like an odd case to me. At 24-25 that is awfully old for a prospect, especially one considered raw.
