Pirates Sign 21st Round Pick Jordan Steranka

The Pittsburgh Pirates have signed 21st round pick Jordan Steranka out of Penn State. The team agreed to a deal with the third baseman over the summer and prior to the signing deadline, but he failed his physical multiple times due to mono. Because he was a college senior, Steranka was eligible to sign with the Pirates up until a week before the 2013 draft. He’s missed almost the entire season, but should join the club for the Fall Instructional Leagues, and could return to State College next year to give the Spikes a hometown player.
