Dominican receives third-highest bonus ever
Though the Fargo Dirtbags recently lost out on the bidding for international sensation Tito Whang, they managed to sign another international star with just as bright a future ahead of him. The Dirtbags announced the signing of Dominican 1B prospect Cesar Gonzales to a 3-year major league deal that includes a $30 million bonus. The $30 million bonus is the third-highest given to an IFA in The Bigs history and narrowly edged the total amount offered to Gonzales by Charleston. Scouts around the league say that Gonzales has the potential to be a future Hall-of-Famer and the durability to play 162 games a season. He began his professional career with Fargo's HiA team earlier this afternoon and went 0-3 with two walks.
