MLB Rules Luis Robert Can Be Free Agent 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Apr 21, 2017 12:53 pm

Luis Robert is not subject to the June first-year player draft, thereby clearing the way for the Cuban outfield prospect to sign with a Major League club as a free agent, according to two sources.

Robert, 19, still has hurdles to clear, but it's likely that he'll be able to sign with a club this summer.

"He's a physical specimen," Reds general manager Dick Williams recently told the Cincinnati Enquirer. "He has shown pretty well in workouts. There are definitely still questions about him. Any of those guys without a huge track record are going to have some questions."
