According to Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports, MLB has decided to uphold Jairo Beras' $4.5 million contract with the Rangers but will suspend him for one year.
Beras gave a birthdate of December 25, 1995 at a prospect showcase back in February. Which would make him 16. But when he agreed to a deal with the Rangers before the July 2 international signing period, it was revealed that he was actually 17. The one-year punishment isn't all that harsh considering he's several years from reaching the upper levels of pro ball. Thu, Jul 12, 2012 01:25:00 PM

Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com reports that the investigation into the identity of prospect Jairo Beras is complete and a decision could be imminent.

The Rangers agreed to sign Beras for $4.5 million back in February, but MLB's labor department and the department of investigations have been reviewing his documentation to determine his correct age. While the Rangers insist that he is 17 years old, Beras was listed with a birthdate of December 25, 1995 in February's MLB prospect showcase in the Dominican Republic. If he is only 16 years old, he wouldn't be eligible to sign until the international signing period begins on July 2.

ESPN's Keith Law writes that a lot of executives are unhappy with the Rangers signing 17-year-old Dominican outfielder Jairo Beras because they were under the impression that he wasn't allowed to sign until July 2.

Dionisio Soldevila of the Associated Press reported early Wednesday morning that the Rangers had signed Beras for $4.5 million. Meanwhile, Ben Badler of Baseball America reports that Beras' birthdate was listed as December 25th, 1995, which means he isn't 17 years old yet. Unless that information was incorrect, the Rangers might have some explaining to do.

Dionisio Soldevila of the Associated Press reports that the Rangers have signed 17-year-old Dominican outfielder Jairo Beras for $4.5 million.

The Rangers have invested $13 million in three international prospects over the past seven months, so they are clearly trying to get ahead of the new cap on international spending, which will go into effect this summer. Beras checks in at 6-foot-5 and 175 pounds and is highly regarded for his power potential.
