We also have bonus information on sixth round pick J.T. Brubaker, who was officially signed on Friday. He got $200,000, which is a savings of $46,500 over his slot amount.
Ninth round pick Bret Helton signed for $150,000, which is $7,600 under his slot amount. Trevillian signed for $150,000 over his slot amount, so at this point, the Pirates are almost $100,000 over their draft bonus pool.
There should be numerous signings announced tomorrow, including first round pick Kevin Newman and #32 overall pick Ke’Bryan Hayes. Only the three picks from Friday have officially been announced, Brubaker, Helton, and eighth round pick Seth McGarry, who hasn’t had his bonus announced yet.
