As reported by BA, Sox are signing Micker Zapata, a top 10 international prospect with big power.

Jason Parks@ProfessorParks23m
Easily. Top 5. RT @SpaldingBalls @ProfessorParks if the Micker Zapata-to-White Sox rumors are true, is he a top 10 prospect in that system?

I wonder if he goes by Mickey? Not a bad name for a power hitter.

Cubs have already signed two of the top ten, including one of the guys BA pegged as better.

True, but Theo was going to sign all the good prospects and draft all the good picks. That is his fiver year (or is it a seven year?) plan. The other 29 teams are only allowed to pick up the remains after Theo is done.

I see Gleyber Torres as top 5 ranked, but I don't see Mejia ranked even in the top 30 (per MLB.com.) Who is the second player?

That's a pretty standard signing bonus for a player of Zapata's talent

BA's rankings are seriously different than MLB.com. Our guy ranked 9th.
