Free agent outfielder Michael Conforto was believed to be out for the season after undergoing shoulder surgery, and would thus go unsigned until next winter. Neither of those things may be true, according to his agent.

Scott Boras claimed that “multiple” teams are interested in signing Conforto after the MLB Draft, at which point draft compensation will no longer be attached to the outfielder. Boras also said that Conforto has at least a chance of being able to hit in September as he works his way back from shoulder surgery.
