Under Frank McCourt, the Dodgers spent the least amount of money of all 30 teams on international signings last year. Indeed, over McCourt’s entire tenure, international signings were all put kicked to the curb in terms of priority. That was something the new Dodgers owners said they’d change. And, according to the Los Angeles Times, they’re changing it.
In a news release, the Dodgers said they were in the process of signing 20 players from Latin America. The release did not name the players and not all the signings apparently are official yet …
Buster says the signings total in the $400-500K range. In all of 2011 the Dodgers spent $177K on such signings.
It’s possible that there’s not a gem in that pile of players, but they never even gave themselves a chance to find one when McCourt was running the show.
