Pirates Sign 41st Round Pick Jonathan Schwind

Schwind has signed with the Pirates.

The Pittsburgh Pirates have signed 41st round pick Jonathan Schwind, according to the Democrat and Chronicle (h/t Kristy Robinson).  Schwind was signed for $20,000, plus the Pirates agreed to pay for his senior year of school ($41,000).  The former Marist junior played three infield positions, and two outfield positions, but was drafted as a catcher by the Pirates.  He will report to the GCL Pirates, who start their season on Monday.

Schwind has quick hands, an above-average arm, and he’s a plus runner. His arm strength and speed combination will allow him to be a catcher, as well as play pretty much anywhere on the field.  The speed hasn’t translated to stolen bases in his college career. He’s been a decent to good hitter the last two years, with some gap power.

The Draft Pick Signing Tracker has been updated.  The Pirates have now signed seven picks.
