Pittsburgh Pirates Sign Pitcher Roger Santana

The Pittsburgh Pirates have made their seventh six-figure bonus signing this July 2nd signing period, inking left-handed pitcher Roger Santana for a $100,000 bonus. He is a 16-year-old from the Dominican, who stand 6’1″, 170 pounds and throws a fastball in the 85-89 MPH range. Santana also throws a curve ball with good potential.

The 2014 international signing tracker has been updated with links to all seven players the Pirates have signed.  They have spent nearly $1.3 Mil of their $1,930,400 bonus pool already.

  • I’m sure the severe slap on the wrist the Yankees will get will deter them next time? Good to see MLB makes sure that only the Yankees and Blo Sox get to toss around money in Latin America. If the ‘penalties’ have any actual teeth, I’ll be stunned.
