The Pittsburgh Pirates announced two draft signings today. The one we knew about was 4th round pick Colten Brewer. I reported that Brewer had reached an agreement with the team back in June, and it’s obviously an over-slot deal since it took this long to finalize. The one we didn’t know about was 8th round pick Jason Creasy. Here is information on each player:
Colten Brewer (4th round – RHP): Went 8-2 with a 1.43 ERA and 98 strikeouts…Was the District 14 3A Pitcher-of-the-Year in 2011…He was also a first-team District 14 3A selection at first base in 2010…Was the 2009 District 14 Newcomer-of-the-Year.
Jason Creasy (8th round – RHP): Helped lead Clayton High School to the Greater Neuse River 4-A Conference Championship in 2011 as a senior while also being named the league pitcher-of-the-year…Went 7-1 with a 1.43 ERA (49.0ip/10er) and 68 strikeouts as a senior…Signed a letter of intent with North Carolina State before signing with the Pirates.
The draft pick signing tracker is updated. The Pirates have signed 16 players from the 2011 draft.
