The Pittsburgh Pirates have signed shortstop Trace Tam Sing as a non-drafted free agent out of Washington State. In 49 starts this season, he had a .238/.333/.357 slash line, with two homers and no stolen bases. He had a .280/.384/.400 line in 2013. Sing is a strong defensive player and prior to 2013, he was voted the best infield arm in the Pac-12.
Sing is a 5’11″, 187 pound righty, who missed most of the 2012 season, so while he was a junior this year, he has spent the last four years at WSU. He has been drafted twice already, getting selected in the 22nd round out of high school by the Boston Red Sox in 2010, and last year, the Kansas City Royals took him in the 26th round. He still had a season of college eligibility left. The Pirates have assigned him to Jamestown.
