With today being July 2nd, news of IFA signings will be coming fast and furious all day. The Yankees have scheduled a 6 PM news conference to announce the signing of IFA Catcher Gary Sanchez according to Jorge Arangure. The Cards are expected to announce a deal with Wagner Mateo sometime today, and expect the Mets to lock up Juan Urbina early on as well.
Ben Badler has his Top 25 IFA list out to help us sort these guys out, and I’ll post updates as they happen with a blurb or two about their skill sets.

Its important to remember that these kids are 16 years old, so there’s plenty of room for growth and much can change in the 4-5 years between now and when you might start seeing them in the bigs. Many of the best IFA’s turn out to not be the lesser signings, not the big bonus ones.
