July 2nd Preview: The Pirates’ Successful Approach in the International Market

Don’t expect the Pittsburgh Pirates to land any big names in the international market once the 2014-15 signing period begins tomorrow. That’s not to say that they won’t land any big talents. The approach the Pirates have had in Latin America in previous years has been very successful, especially when it comes to finding cheap talent. There’s no greater evidence of this than with Gregory Polanco, who is...

Possible July 2nd Targets For Pittsburgh Pirates

The July 2nd international signing period starts on Wednesday and so far, the Pittsburgh Pirates haven’t been mentioned as possible landing spots for any of the top names. Today on Baseball America, Ben Badler has his July 2nd preview up and while none of his top 30 are linked to the Pirates, he adds in some other names at each position that are players to watch.

Pirates 23rd Round Pick Released From Tulane Commitment

A week ago I wrote about how Pittsburgh Pirates 23rd round pick Zach Warren was requesting a release from his commitment to Tulane. Warren had committed to Tulane before several changes to the coaching staff, and requested his release as a result of those changes. According to Warren himself, on Twitter, he has been de-committed and released from Tulane. Officially decommitted and released from Tulane… Crazy how things work out...
