Pirates Agree to Terms With 4th Round Pick Colten Brewer

Brewer has agreed to terms with the Pirates.

The Pittsburgh Pirates have agreed to terms with 2011 4th round pick Colten Brewer, Pirates Prospects has learned.  Brewer is the highest pick that the Pirates have reached an agreement with, and the third player in the 2011 top ten that has agreed to terms.

Brewer wasn’t ranked in the Baseball America top 200, although he was the #38 prospect out of Texas.  He works in the 87-91 MPH range, touching 93 with a sinking fastball.  He is 6′ 4″, 200 pounds, which gives him the chance to fill out and add velocity later in his career.  He bears some similarity to Zack Dodson:  both were 4th round picks who were ranked among the top prospects in Texas but not in BA’s top 200.  Dodson had a commitment to Baylor, while Brewer’s is to Weatherford Junior College in Texas.  No word on the terms of the deal yet.
