Pirates Expected to Sign Eighth Rounder Kevin Ross

Kendall Rogers at Perfect Game reports that the Pittsburgh Pirates are expected to sign eighth round pick Kevin Ross. Rogers says that the University of Michigan, where Ross has a commitment, doesn’t expect Ross to attend school. The slot price for Ross is $138,200. He’s a prep shortstop, so there’s a possibility that he could command an over-slot deal.
