The Pittsburgh Pirates have announced that they signed nine of their draft picks. The players officially announced are:
The first five players on that list were covered here last night, along with bonus amounts for four of them. Three of the last four were mentioned in the draft rumors post earlier yesterday as players who indicated they were signing, while Diorio was a player who could have decided to go back to school as a senior next year. He missed a large portion of the season with a hand injury. There should be more signings announced later this week, with a few players saying they were headed to Pittsburgh to get physicals on Thursday. You can find the player pages for all of these signed players on our draft tracker page (I’ve also linked them individually up top), which has been updated with the known bonus amounts.
Baseball America announced that Cam Vieaux signed for $175,000, which is $63,600 under his slot amount. They can now use that money towards any over-slot deals, to go along with the $85,000 they were already under from the previously announced deals. The draft tracker has been updated.
Cederlind and Gibbs have been assigned to Bristol, while the other seven players were all assigned to Morgantown.
