Rangers MLB suspends Rangers prospect Jairo Beras for a year; upholds his $4.5 million deal

Quote:
Back in February, the Rangers signed Dominican outfielder Jairo Beras for $4.5 million. This was a problem, because Beras had previously told MLB that he was only 16 and thus was not yet eligible to be signed. Turned out he was, in fact, 17, and thus was eligible to be signed by the Rangers, but that since he lied about his age, he was subject to discipline.

Today that discipline came: he has been suspended for a year. Jeff Passan, who has been following this story for a long time, has all the details. My take: this is good news for both Beras and the Rangers.

Its good for the Rangers because they could have had the contract voided by MLB, when in fact they would really like to hold on to Beras. Its good for Beras because if it were voided, hed be back out on the free agent market, would likely still be suspended and then be looking to sign another deal at 18, and boy howdy hed get less money then.

So while he cant play until next July, he can still train at the Rangers facilities and stay with the team and then be ready to start being a genuine pro while hes still young and stuff.
