The July 2nd signing period begins in three days and Ben Badler had a couple names attached to the Pirates. We will expand more on that in tomorrow’s Morning Report. For now though, the ultimate teaser article. One of the players connected to the Pirates can’t sign until his 16th birthday on August 22nd. So we have a name and a great connection to the Pirates, you just won’t hear about him signing for a couple months.
The Pirates have been well connected to Dominican trainer Raul Valera, better know in the international circles as “Banana”. The Pirates have signed numerous players from him and it sounds like this year’s target is Dominican outfielder Jean Robert Eusebio. For your viewing pleasure and for future reference, here are some videos on the soon-to-be 16-year-old, who appears to be headed to the Pirates. He is listed at 6’0″, 160 pounds, though it’s obviously important to point out that his height/weight was from October and he’s young enough to continue to grow.
I’m just writing stuff to break up the videos at this point
DPL stands for Dominican Prospect League, which is exactly what the name makes it sound like.
You must really like these videos to keep going this far.
