Three Of Five Lost Venezuelan Players Signed Elsewhere

According to Baseball America, three of the five Venezuelan free agents the Red Sox were stripped of by MLB have signed with other ball-clubs. Specifically, CF Simon Muzziotti signed a $750,000 deal with the Phillies, SS Antonio Pinero inked a $375,000 deal with the Brewers, and (most galling of all) SS Eduardo Torrealba signed a $300,000 contract with The Evil Ones. The loss of the five players was part of the penalty imposed on Boston for "violating" recruitment rules for international players.
