Pirates Sign Dan Gamache

Gamache has been signed for $125 K.

The Pittsburgh Pirates have signed 6th round pick Dan Gamache for $125,000, according to Baseball America.  Gamache was a third baseman out of Auburn, hitting for a .299/.414/.464 line in 194 at-bats in 2011.  He hits to all fields, but doesn’t have much power.  A lot of his value comes on defense, with good range and a strong arm.  Gamache will likely play for the State College Spikes this year, who begin their season on Friday.

       After seeing Avila plays 3 days in a row I’m wondering if they may send him to State College and put the college kid ahead of him figuring Gamache could handle low-A ball better right now

    This was a pretty good sleeper pick IMO. He may not work out, but I reluctantly give NH a thumbs up.
    John, I think your thoughts are valid, but is it possible Avila and Gamache get abou a month to see if what should happen next….
