Sano signs for $3.15 million, then changes name

Nov 30, 2009, 4:02 PM EDT

Miguel Angel Sano has apparently changed his name, which is certain to raise a few eyebrows after the shortstop from the Dominican Republic signed with the Twins in September amid questions about whether he was really 16 years old.
Kelly Thesier of MLB.com notes that he’d been using his mother’s maiden name as a sign of respect that’s common in the Dominican Republic, but will now go by his father’s last name as Miguel Jean. Adjust your 2017 replica jerseys accordingly.
You’ll see that name pop up plenty on various prospect rankings, because Sano/Jean received a $3.15 million signing bonus that’s the second-largest ever for a Latin American prospect (Cuban defectors excluded) and is considered one of the most advanced hitters to come out of the Dominican Republic in a long time. He’s expected to begin his pro career in the rookie-level Gulf Coast League next spring.

    To commercialise in full terms of high-performance rather than cost, and in order to specialise accordingly, you require to follow the frequent format of the 4 Ps marketing plan. That is, Price, Product, Place and Promotion evidently you cognize the fundamental attributes of the merchandise, and the cost, but for place you should remember around the type of people who are willing to give over 4x price of competing product whereas the low-priced option may be sold where accent is on cost, your merchandise will be suited to places/distributors where the customers will be willing to pay for quality. Thank you for this article! I’ve just retrieved a really true news portal about advertising Seek it!
