The Pittsburgh Pirates have agreed to terms with at least two of their draft picks so far, Pirates Prospects has learned. Sixth round pick Tyler Eppler and 18th round pick Erik Lunde have agreed to terms and will be signing soon.
Eppler is a right-handed pitcher from Sam Houston State, and was drafted as a college junior. Lunde is a college senior, and played second base as Lander University. Both players are expected to go to Jamestown, due to their age.
There are a few other names that we’ve heard will be signing either today or tomorrow. We’re working to confirm those, and will have updates as they come in. For more on the first two players, check out their player pages.
