no.  cubans over the age of 23 are exempt fro that rule as they are considered professionals. 

I did not know that... So, how old is Abreu and has he been pro for 3+ years?

I believe he is 26 and has been playing since 18 so he's in the clear when it comes to bonus limitations

He would get more, maybe much more, than Cespedes or Soler.

So as I understand the rules, if a team goes over bonus, the only penalty is that next season they can't pay over 250k in bonuses plus they have to pay a tax?

He got drafted. By Yu's old team. But it doesn't change anything.
Quote from: Otani
My feelings haven't changed. I'm grateful that they appreciate me, but it doesn't change my desire to play in America.

 More scouts saying the arm they really want is Shintaro Fujinami. More public hype for Shohei Otani because he wants to come to the US now.

This kid has turned out to be a total stud.  He's already the ace of Darvish's former club.

Do they have any hitters? They wouldn't even have to learn English.
