The Mariners do not have any agreement with Dominican outfielder Helsin Martinez, according to Mariners vice president of international operations Bob Engle. The International Prospect League announced this morning that Martinez had signed with the Mariners for $2 million, which Baseball America reported, citing the IPL's announcement.
"We did not sign Martinez in the Dominican Republic," Engle said. "That is not correct at all. Whoever put out that information is totally inaccurate."
The IPL had also announced that the Royals signed Dominican outfielder Elier Hernandez for $3.05 million and that the Tigers signed Dominican third baseman Adelin Santa for $750,000.
