Pardinho favored to sign with the Blue Jays
Big days on the calendar include:
Saturday, July 1: Canada’s 150th birthday.
Sunday July 2: The first day to sign international free agents 16 years of age of older.
And Your Toronto Blue Jays are 1/2 faves to sign Eric Pardinho, 16, whose pitches were clocked at 95 MPH during the World Baseball Classic qualifier in the fall of 2016..
At 5-foot-10, 165-pounds, he struck out 12 batters at the 16U Pan-American Championship against the Dominican Republic and in the win.
The Blue Jays had success in Brazil before landing RHP Jose Pett in 1992 for a signing bonus of $700,000 more than OF Shawn Green ($580,000)m 1B John Olerud ($575,000) and OF Shannon Stewart ($450,000).
Both the Atlanta Braves and the Jays offered the same amount. However, due to an existing US-Brazil tax-at-source treaty which did not exist in Canada, so therefore the Jays offer was more.
These odds may be of interest. They are courtesy of Bodog.
