The Pittsburgh Pirates have signed their 25th round pick from the 2014 draft, shortstop Erik Forgione from the University of Washington. Forgione announced the official signing himself on Twitter today

The 21-year-old is a very strong defensive player, who projects to remain at the position in the pros. He never hit much in college, so he will need to improve that aspect of his game if he is going to advance far in the pros. You can find his player page here and keep track of all of the draft signings in our draft tracker.

    • There are a few other players we know about, but don’t have official word from the team or the player that they signed yet. Expect a few more to be announced tonight or tomorrow.

    • I am hoping that they don’t sign him. They can then take a TRUE #1 comp pick next year.

      • I am just assuming here, but I think he will sign for enough under slot that it will allow them to sign someone worthwhile with the extra cash
