Beras signing approved but player suspended
Major League Baseball, according to Tim Brown of Yahoo, has approved the Rangers contract with outfielder Jairo Beras but has suspended the player for one year for lying about his age. The Rangers signed Beras for a $4.5 million signing bonus in March but the agreement was held up because of questions about the player’s age.
Major League Baseball is expected to make a formal announcement Thursday afternoon. The Rangers have not commented.
