Source: Reds in bidding war for Inoa

A source told that the Rangers and Reds have joined Oakland in a bidding feud for the services of Dominican pitching prospect Michael Inoa, the crown jewel of the pool of Latin American players who will be available to be signed July 2.

The 6-foot-7, 210-pound right-hander has a 93-mph fastball, a change-up and a curveball. Oh, and he’s 16 years old.

But rumor has it he’s going to demand a signing bonus of $5-6 million, which is almost what they’re going to have to shell out for Yonder Alonso.
