MLB.com’s Alden Gonzalez reports that the Angels are interested in 19-year-old Cuban infielder Yoan Moncada, but he is “likely” out of their price range, given a projected signing bonus between $30-40 million.

Moncada held a showcase for interested teams on Wednesday, with the Red Sox and Braves appearing to have the most interest according to Ben Badler of Baseball America. The Yankees, Giants, Rays, Padres, and Cubs have also been linked to the switch-hitting infielder.

Moncada is not yet a free agent, as he has to be unblocked by the Office of Foreign Assets Control of the U.S. Department of the Treasury first.
