I will be keeping track of all of the draft pick signings over the summer, leading up to the August 17th deadline at midnight (I’ll be doing a live blog of the signing deadline for all of you who will be up late for the action). Below are the players we drafted. To read about these players, check out my draft recaps:
I also will be keeping track of every MLB team and their signing status, so that we can compare the numbers to the Pirates. I probably won’t do regular updates to these until around August:
1. The Pirates signed 31 of 50 picks last year (they have 51 this year).
2. The Pirates spent an estimated $9.8 M in the draft last year, with $8.3 M coming in the top ten rounds.
