With today being the first day that MLB teams can sign international prospects, the signings are coming in fast and furious. One of the biggest story lines from this year's signing class is Melissa Mayeux, the first female player to be eligible to sign with a MLB team during this period. Her inclusion has spurred quite the controversy and discussion about women in baseball.

This signing period has provided a pipeline for MLB teams and their roster, with 30 percent of players on Opening Day rosters have come from Latin American countries. Miguel Cabrera, for example, was signed in 1999 by the then Florida Marlins as an amateur free agent.

A growing international signing period has led to an expansion of programs and developmental leagues in these countries, making this free agent period stacked with talent for the MLB teams to tap into. Near the top of the international prospect list are Vladimir Guerrero's son and nephew. Vladimir Jr. is ranked as the No. 2 international prospect by MLB.com and Gregory, his nephew, is rated as the 14th best prospect in this years class.

Throughout the day, we will be updating this list with all of the day's signings so you can keep tabs on who your team is signing on July 2nd.
