Pirates Agree to Deal With 13th Round Pick Frank Duncan

The Pittsburgh Pirates have agreed to a deal with 13th round draft pick Frank Duncan. The 6’4″ right-hander from Kansas is on his way to Pittsburgh today and will take his physical tomorrow before the deal becomes official. The 22-year-old was drafted by the Cleveland Indians last year in the 39th round, but decided to return to school for his senior year. He started 16 games this season and threw 118.2 innings, striking out 82, while posting a 1.02 WHIP and .250 BAA. He will report to Jamestown after signing.

John was born in Kearny, NJ, hometown of the 2B for the Pirates 1909 World Championship team, Dots Miller. In fact they have some of the same relatives in common, so it was only natural for him to become a lifelong Pirates fan. Before joining Pirates Prospects in July 2010, John had written numerous articles on the history of baseball while also releasing his own book and co-authoring another on the history of the game. He writes a weekly article on Pirates history for the site, has already interviewed many of the current minor leaguers with many more on the way and follows the foreign minor league teams very closely for the site. John also provides in person game reports of the West Virginia Power and Altoona Curve.
