    Padres sign three teenagers led by Jarlin Susana to begin 2022 international signing period

    There might not be anything going on transaction-wise at the major league level, as the players and the league aren’t on the same page regarding a new CBA, but there is some activity internationally. The San Diego Padres have signed three players from the international ranks, as A.J. Preller and Chris Kemp announced on Saturday morning. Those three players are Jarlin Susana, Yendry Rojas, and Rosman Verdugo.
