J2 Chisme

According to at least one report:

Miguel Nunez is leaning towards Boston or NYY.
Rafael de Paula is leaning towards Japan with NYY highly interested.
David Perez has the same agency as de Paula though that doesn't seem to be swaying their camp.
Perez's stock was down due to velo fluctations that some have attributed to a change his throwing mechanics this year. Some also wonder about his failure to throw any harder now than when he was 15 (86-89). AT 6.4/180, you'd think TX can iron all of this out to take advantage of his ideal frame so I don't think it should be much of an issue.
