Updating a previous report, the Kansas City Royals have reached a $1.3 million deal with SS Marten Gasparini, a 16-year-old from Italy who is considered by some the best European baseball prospect in history, according to Baseball America, although the club hasn't yet confirmed the report. The bonus would be the highest ever given to a player from Europe. "Gasparini is one of the best athletes on the international market," Baseball America reported. "(He) has excellent speed and should play a premium position, with a lot of scouts projecting him as a center fielder." Gasparini is a switch-hitter who is 6-foot, 175 pounds and was ranked the 12th-best international prospect by BA.
