Baltimore Orioles: Victor Victor Mesa to Miami

The Baltimore Orioles have reportedly lost out on prized Cuban player Victor Victor Mesa. And his brother, Victor Jr. The duo will instead take their talents to South Beach, where they’ll reportedly play in the Miami Marlins’ organization. An announcement is expected this week.

The Orioles direly wanted the Cuban duo to be the flagship of their rebuild. The Birds at one point were in the lead when it came to the potential to sign the two, as they led the league in international bonus slots. Former GM Dan Duquette had acquired approximately $6 million in international bonus money. However Miami made a few trades and inched ahead.

Victor Victor Mesa is expected to sign for $5 million, while Victor Jr. is expected to sign a deal for $1 million.
