2012 and 2013 MLB International Free Agent data

Former IFA signing Yordano Ventura inked his first contract for a $28,000 bonus in 2008 - Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Reported signing bonus for international free agents in 2012 and 2013.

With John's recent post about the top signing bonuses up to 2009, it reminded me of something I had accumulated through the past year. I set out to find as many international free agent singings with a reported bonus in the past two years.

I came up with a pretty thorough list, and arranged them in my favorite data delivery method - a Google Doc spreadsheet. Instead of bogging down the bandwidth with 30 different tables, just give the link a click and it will pull up all 30 teams, split up by league in a new window.

As an example, here are the international signings I came up with for the Atlanta Braves and Boston Red Sox.
