Cuban outfielder Yasmani Tomas could command as much as $100 million from a Major League Baseball team and the Red Sox and Phillies are interested, according to a report Sunday from Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe.
Citing an international scout, Cafardo reported that Tomas is in shape and the offers he'll see could get "really high" if he performs well at his showcase later in the month. Multiple teams could make a run at him, including Boston and Philadelphia.
The 23-year-old hit .275 for Industriales last season with 10 homers and 59 RBI in a 90-game regular season and seven playoff games. He's been with Industriales since 2008 and played for Cuba in the World Baseball Classic last year.
