Pirates Agree to Terms With 4th Round Pick Colten Brewer

Brewer has agreed to terms with the Pirates.

The Pittsburgh Pirates have agreed to terms with 2011 4th round pick Colten Brewer, Pirates Prospects has learned.  Brewer is the highest pick that the Pirates have reached an agreement with, and the third player in the 2011 top ten that has agreed to terms.

Brewer wasn’t ranked in the Baseball America top 200, although he was the #38 prospect out of Texas.  He works in the 87-91 MPH range, touching 93 with a sinking fastball.  He is 6′ 4″, 200 pounds, which gives him the chance to fill out and add velocity later in his career.  He bears some similarity to Zack Dodson:  both were 4th round picks who were ranked among the top prospects in Texas but not in BA’s top 200.  Dodson had a commitment to Baylor, while Brewer’s is to Weatherford Junior College in Texas.  No word on the terms of the deal yet.

The Draft Pick Signing Tracker has been updated.

Tim started Pirates Prospects in 2009 from his home in Virginia, which was 40 minutes from where Pedro Alvarez made his pro debut in Lynchburg. That year, the Lynchburg Hillcats won the Carolina League championship, and Pirates Prospects was born from Tim's reporting along the way. The site has grown over the years to include many more writers, and Tim has gone on to become a credentialed MLB reporter, producing Pirates Prospects each year, and will publish his 11th Prospect Guide this offseason. He has also served as the Pittsburgh Pirates correspondent for Baseball America since 2019. Behind the scenes, Tim is an avid music lover, and most of the money he gets paid to run this site goes to vinyl records.

Your picture of Brewer shows an outfielder making a great catch. I hope this is to show how athletic he is when he plays another position and not some batter driving the ball off of him.
