Scott Boras’ underground railroad

A year ago, Scott Boras told that moving an American or Canadian amateur overseas would not allow him to return as an international free agent — that the only way to enter MLB was through the June draft.

On Tuesday, he reported on Carter Stewart’s first season with the SoftBank Hawks. Stewart signed a six-year deal in June that will allow him to enter MLB as an international free agent after he turns 25.

Asked what had changed since our chat last year, Boras denied telling a lie but rather said he was just not revealing his hand.

“I wasn’t throwing you off the track. I just wasn’t showing you all the tracks.”
