New Dodgers Ownership Placing Emphasis On Finding International Talent
Published November 13, 2012
WAITING GAME: Dodgers President & CEO Stan Kasten yesterday said that the team could "wait until after the winter meetings to decide whether to sign" Ryu. In L.A., Bill Shaikin notes if the Dodgers "do not sign him by Dec. 10," they get their $25.7M negotiating rights fee back. It is "unlikely they would damage their expanded presence in international baseball by failing to sign him" (L.A. TIMES, 11/13). In California, Bill Plunkett noted the Dodgers "have already spent at least" $77M on Puig and Ryu to "demonstrate their renewed commitment to searching the globe for talent." But they "emphasized that commitment Monday by announcing the hiring of six scouts to a reconstructed international scouting department." All six "have ties" to Engle from his time with the Mariners (OCREGISTER.com, 11/12).
