The Heredia situation seems like a bidding war, because I’ve heard that a Mexican league team controls his rights.

I doubt that the bidding tops Michael Ynoa’s $4.25 million, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it got somewhere near there.

Between Taillon, Allie, Heredia, and the Pirates taking over the Rendon Sweepstakes, this could go down as one of the greatest talent-accumulation weeks in Pirates history.
