    The Astros are out of the penalty box this year after being restricted to giving out bonuses no bigger than $300,000 the last two years.



    This is the second in Baseball America's series of IFAs to watch but I'm not including the first article since there weren't any kids linked to the Astros. This one does, however!

    SS Dauris Lorenzo is a switch-hitter and is getting attention for his feel for hitting. He's managed to demonstrate that ability in games as well. He's expected to sign for $1.5 million.

    Astros favorited to sign SS Dauri Lorenzo, MLB.com’s #14 prospect for this July 2. Looks like a good one, will probably immediately be one of the top 15 prospects in the org if they get him.
