Fire Brand Trivia! For the next eight weeks, there will be a prize for every right answer! Will you be clutch when it counts?

Question: Which two players on the current 40-man roster were acquired as amateur free agents?

(This question is a one-and-done, so only the response with both players will win the prize!)

HONOR CODE: No search engines or keyword searches.

Previous Question Answer: Dice-K and Julian Tavarez induced the most double plays in 2007, with both getting 17 hitters to start a twin killing on the bases.

Walter answered that one correctly! Ruben, T Nevin, and Tim P all get half a point.

    I can think of three who signed as international amateur free agents (I think).

    The 2 international amateurs that i can think of are Jose Iglesias and Junichi Tazawa.

    Iglesias and Doubront?

    Jose Iglesias and Dan Butler are my answers. But I thought Daniel Nava's acquisition from the indy league was also considered to be amateur free agent.
