The Houston Hangovers have signed Geraldo Mendez to a minor league deal with a bonus that will pay him 10.9 million dollars.
Mendez projects as a front of the rotation starter and will likely report to the Rookie League or Low A Hangovers later today. When speaking to Mendez via telephone, he indicated that the market for his services was limited due to other owners "blowing" their prospect budget.
Mendez appears to be a steal for the Hangovers and will certainly cause problems in the National League South for many years to come.
