Angels face lawsuit from MLB prospects; players seek whopping sums

Sep 9, 2022

Two international prospects are reportedly suing the Los Angeles Angels in Dominican Republic court, alleging the MLB organization backed out on verbal agreements to sign them.

Lawyers for Willy Fañas and Keiderson Pavon had an Aug. 31 hearing to continue their lawsuit that alleges the prospects agreed to deals with the Angels worth $1.8 million and $425,000, respectively, per ESPN.

At the time, Fañas was 14 years old and Pavon was 15. A change in the organization’s front office led to those deals falling through.
