07:21 AM ET 10.04 | And then there were ... five? Five teams had the strongest presence at this week's open showcases for Cuban first baseman Jose Abreu, according to several sources in attendance. The Rangers and Red Sox, two teams that some believe could be the frontrunners for Abreu, each had several evaluators at Abreu's showcases, held Monday and Tuesday at the Yankees' Dominican academy. The Red Sox "were there in full force," according to one scout. ... [Teams] no longer playing were able to send some of their more senior executives. White Sox executive vice president Ken Williams was there, as were a heavy contingent from the Giants led by general manager Brian Sabean, special assistant Felipe Alou and special assignment scout Pat Burrell. Dan Jennings, whom the Marlins recently promoted to general manager, was also in attendance.

Looks kind of puny in the picture for a 1st baseman.

Well, he is only 9 years old.
Or maybe 36.

36 claiming to be 9. His real name is probably Diego Segui too.
