explains my question of why herrera wasn’t playing SS to some degree.  this other guy is good too perhaps.  and maybe he’s the only one younger than herrera.

As far as a big name for the upcoming seasons, I haven’t heard anything at all. With Herrera despite the fact they were following him for 4 years his name was mentioned only shortly before he signed. All I heard about him prior to that was that they were in on a shortstop from Colombia

Do we know of anyone like a Heredia or Sano (almost) on the horizon over the next couple years?

They aren’t draft eligible. This year starting July 2nd they cant sign anyone born between Sept 1,1994 and July 2,1995. From July 3 until August 31 they can sign anyone who has a 16th birthday in that time frame, on their birthday.
