Pirates Announce Two New Draft Pick Signings

The Pittsburgh Pirates announced today that seven more draft picks have signed, including two new ones we haven’t announced here. The new ones are 19th round pick Carl Andersen and 32nd round pick Montana DuRapau. The other names announced today were Taylor Gushue, Austin Coley, Sam Street, Erik Lunde and Nick Neumann. You can find information on all of them on our draft pick signing tracker page.

Andersen is an outfielder from Bryant College, who put up strong numbers as a junior this year. The 21-year old is a left-handed hitter with above average speed and he showed some pop this season, to go along with a good batting average/on base skills. His player page can be viewed here.

DuRapau is a 22-year-old right-handed pitcher, who was a senior at Bethune-Cookman this year. He’s small for a pitcher at 5’11” and doesn’t throw hard, topping out at 88 MPH, but he offers a nice four-pitch mix. You can view his player page here.
