Shadow Twins 2014 International Free Agent signings

Here are the players signed by the Shadow Twins. The bonus pool is 3,686,000. I intend to stick within the budget. Using the same rules I used in 2012 and 2013, if I want a player signed in real life by a team that is not the Twins, I must beat the real team bonus by at least 10%.

My choices:

1) Franklin Perez, RHP, Venezuela: Signed by Astros in real life for $1,000,000. I will sign him for $1,100,000.
2) Huascar Ynoa, RHP, Dominican Republic: Signed by real life Twins for $800,000. I will stick with that.
3) Jesus Sanchez, OF, Dominican Republic: Signed by Rays in real life for $400,000. I will sign him for $440,000.
4) Daniel Guzman, LHP, Venezuela. Signed by Mets in real life for $140,000. I will sign him for $175,000.
5) Edgar Pineda, SS, Venezuela. Signed by Rangers in real life for $135,000. I will sign him for $175,000.

The Real Twins signed outfielder Jean Carlos Arias for $450,000, but I want to give that money to Jesus Sanchez so I don't get Arias.

I intend to sign catcher Lenin Rodriguez but he hasn't signed in real life yet so I don't know how the bonus will fit.I currently have about $250,000 budgeted for him but we'll see if that turns out to be too much or too little. Right now I still have about a million dollars to work with.

Given the weirdness of the international market and the difficulty in shadowing these types of signings, the list doesn't have to be finalized for several months, with the caveat that I can't sign a player once he has taken the field professionally in real life. In other words, I cannot wait to see what a guy does in the DSL or in rookie ball. I can only sign him before there is any professional data to look at.
