Even the best players in this year’s international free-agent class won’t be wholly relevant for another five years. With that in mind, much of this episode is dedicated to those IFAs who signed five years ago — a collection of players that includes Rafael Devers and Gleyber Torres among others. Also: notes from Longenhagen’s looks in the Rookie-level Arizona League and other, different notes from FanGraphs’ annual trip to Denver, Colorado.
