With the first day of international signing period coming up, many teams made moves that could have a huge impact later this decade. One such move was made by San Francisco Giants who signed Ryan Reckley to a 2-year contract worth $2 million dollars and also reeled in Venezuelan catcher Juan Perez for an estimated amount of 1.2 million dollars.
