Seen as the future "Babe Ruth of Cuba" until he defected, Dayan Viciedo has been cleared by MLB to be a free agent. Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times has the White Sox ready to snap up the third-base prospect, who is still just 19.
With the A's saying they will be spending more money on the international market, I do not see how the A's can pass up an opertunity to bid on this guy. First Round Talent, Plays 3B which is a position of dire need for the A's (our top minor league prospect at the position is Chris Carter, who projects to either be a 1B or DH).
We're a team that is rebuilding, we need these types of players. If we can go after Inoa, why not a position player?
