According to Travis Sawchik, the Pittsburgh Pirates are set to sign Reese McGuire tomorrow.

McGuire graduated high school this weekend. The Pirates were unable to sign him to a deal before that happened. He seemed eager to sign after being drafted, telling Jessica Quiroli that he had decided to turn pro. So it’s no surprise that he is signing the first chance he could. McGuire should start his season in the GCL, which begins on Friday.

UPDATE 6:39 PM: Sawchik has more in his story in the Trib, noting that McGuire is expected to sign for “near slot”.

    Love seeing the enthusiasm McGuire and Meadows are showing towards being a Buc. Maybe after long last, the stigma of being associated with anything to do with the Pirates is disappearing.

        According to, no GCL games scheduled for Thursday. But Jamestown Jammers do have a game Thursday and season starts this week. Hence I asked the question. Nevertheless your point is taken.

          My mistake on the day. I was going off of memory, which is a bad thing since 90% of the time I don’t even know what the current day is. But he will be in the GCL. Just on Friday.
