The Pittsburgh Pirates have made their eighth international signing of the July 2nd signing period according to Jesse Sanchez at MLB.com. There is very little information available on the newest player. His name is Jerry De Los Santos and he is a 16-year-old right-hander out of the Dominican, who signed for a $100,000 bonus. No other information is available at this time. We will have more on De Los Santos in the near future.
You can find information on the other seven signings in our international draft signing tracker. The Pirates have just $540,400 left in their international signing bonus pool, though that number could be lower as every signing may not have been announced yet.Pirates Prospects is FREE today in honor of the Wild Card game.
