Pirates sign Bryce Weidman and Adalberto Santos

The Pittsburgh Pirates have signed two more draft picks, according to Jennifer Langosch.  The Pirates signed 14th round pick Bryce Weidman, and 22nd round pick Adalberto Santos.  The two signings bring the total up to ten from the 2010 draft class.

Weidman pitched for Southwestern Oregon Community College last year, with a 2.20 ERA and an 82:15 K/BB ratio in 82 innings of work.  The 19-year old right handed pitcher hits 90 MPH on his fastball, and has tightened up his breaking ball in the last year.  His biggest issue is repeating his delivery.  No word yet on where Weidman will be placed.

Santos, a senior out of Oregon State, hit for a .336 average with 10 homers and 20 steals in 217 at-bats in 2010.  Santos was drafted as a second baseman, although he has been assigned to State College and is listed as an outfielder.

The Draft Pick Signing Tracker is updated with the moves.
