Edgar Santana - Pittsburg Pirates

Edgar Santana Signs Up With
Global Sports Group!

Global Sports Group is proud to announce the signing of Edgar Santana, a highly prized Pirates power reliever throwing a 94-95 fastball combined with a bottomless slider!

His impressive scouting reports have this common theme. Santana takes command at the mound and when he needs to will throw a high inside fastball to back hitters off the plate, setting them up for a slider down and away. Such command has paid off in shutout innings driven by strikeouts, no walks, and few hits.

Currently he's pitching right now for the Pirates in Bradenton high A Florida state league, but his command and performance could take him up a level in mid-season.

Yadir Drake - Los Angeles Dodgers

A Star In The Making Signs With
Global Sports Group!

Yadir Drake, a star outfielder from the Mexican League who recently signed with the Los Angeles Dodgers, has joined the Global Sports Group baseball agency. The Cuban player, who has been likened to a mini Yasiel Puig, is quickly rising through the Dodgers system.

Yadir has put up some very impressive numbers during his first year playing professional baseball. After playing only 7 games in “A” ball, he was moved up to strong “A” where he played another 7 games before being moved again to “AA” where he finished the rest of the season playing 106 games. All totaled, his batting average was .281, his on base percentage was .342, and his slugging percentage was .357. With numbers like that, it got him lots of attention.

Bob Rivera, the President of Global Sports Group, said, "We are very thrilled Yadir has joined our team and we are looking forward to helping him fulfill his dream, and that of his family, of stepping onto the field as a player of a Major League Baseball team."

Julio Alonso, the Player Rep Manager of Global Sports Group, agrees adding, “The 2016 baseball season will be a BIG year in Yadir's professional baseball career. After this season, the world will know of MLB's new Cuban star, Yadir Drake!”
