Evandro Cerigo, an international free agent outfielder, is rumored to be in talks with the Denver Danger, where the power-hitting 25-year-old would be right at home with the homer friendly Highlander Dome.
Now, other teams are said to be talking with the Venezuelan, including Detroit, Chicago, Seattle and Nevada. His price range is thought to be north of $5.5 million for the season, a bargain if he lives up to his potential.
But, being an international free agent, some scouts are worried about how he might adjust to the Bull League. He only became available as an eligible free agent in the Bull League in early March, after playing in an independent semi-pro league in his home country.
But at least one team is believed to be making a multi-year offer to the 6’4″, 215-lb left-handed batter, a sign that some teams consider Cerigo a play-maker who may be a huge success factor.
Being a native of Venezuela, Cerigo has drawn comparisons to fellow compatriots like first basemen Pedro Rosario (New York) and Jorge Garzes (Seattle), both of whom are similar in age to Cerigo, and have swings just as mighty.
