July 2 marks the opening of international free agency, when MLB teams are allowed to sign free agents from outside the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico who are at least 16 years old. Teams have been ramping up their spending in Latin America over the past few years, with the Toronto Blue Jays expected to drop a substantial amount of money in the arena this summer. So, for the first time, I'm offering notes on the top prospects who are expected to sign over the next few weeks.
