Pirates Sign 8th Round Pick Jason Creasy

Pirates Sign 8th Round Pick Jason Creasy

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.
