Peguero to Seattle for 2.9m

So much for the "weak signing class". Also, too bad that the Texas has been completely outdone on the j2 scene this year by its own division rivals, Seattle and Oakland, no less. It is quite a shame rally, maybe even embarrassing. I chalk it up to one more aspect of the collateral damage that Tom Hicks has left in his wake in the 2009 and 2010 off/seasons. As such, I'm going to go out on a limb and say that TX signs two 2011 j2 eligible players (or Pacific Rim kids) to 7-figure salaries next year. POW!

Anyways, Ben Badler had this summary and Peguero projects as a 3B:

With Peguero and Dominican outfielder Phillips Castillo, who signed for $2.2 million in July, the Mariners have secured two of the top hitters from this year's international signing class and two of the six Latin American players this year who signed for at least $2 million, joining Cardona, Pirates righthander Luis Heredia ($2.6 million, Mexico), Astros outfielder Ariel Ovando ($2.6 million, Dominican Republic) and Athletics third baseman Renato Nunez ($2.2 million, Venezuela).
