2013 draftThe Pirates drafted Max Rossiter last year in the 32nd round, but he decided not to sign and went back to Arizona State for his senior year. They took him again this year in the 15th round, and this time they signed him. Rossiter went to Jamestown, where he went 1-for-3 with a walk and two RBIs in his debut on June 19th.

That was his only game as a pro. He’s currently listed on the Voluntarily Retired List. From what I’ve been told, he left the team unexpectedly after the opening series. This is similar to what happened a few years ago with Brian Sharp. Sharp was a 24th round pick in the 2011 draft, and played in 19 games for State College before retiring. Rossiter retiring after one game and one series probably sets some kind of record.
