According to reports, Braves and top foreign prospect agree to a $5 million deal.

In the global market, the Braves are having a significant impact. One of the best foreign prospects, 17-year-old Jose Perdomo of Venezuela, has agreed to a $5 million deal with the team, according to MLB Pipeline.

Over a year ago, the Braves were considered favorites to sign Perdomo. Now, it’s official.

It’s important to note that he is a native of Venezuela. Ronald Acuna Jr., the current MVP winner and de facto King in his native land, must have an effect on these overseas prospects—though this is all pure conjecture.

Perdomo ranks first on Baseball America’s list of international prospects who will sign for the biggest bonus, according to Ben Badler of Baseball America.

Since he is only 17 years old, it is obviously difficult to predict what kind of player he will be when he makes it to the major leagues, if he does so at all. Just seeing the Braves back in the international scene is nice, as they haven’t been able to do so in recent years.

Because of the 2017 investigation into former general manager John Coppolella, who resigned and was ultimately banned from baseball, the Braves have been subject to foreign limitations for a while. The Braves are emerging from the extreme limitations, and Coppolella has since been reinstated.

The finish is now in sight, and Jose Perdomo may be the shining beacon that guides us there.
