The Pittsburgh Pirates signed their 42nd overall draft pick on Thursday night, right-handed prep pitcher Steven Jennings. They have also signed right-handed prep pitcher Jake Webb who was taken in the 19th round and had a commitment to Kansas State. They have now signed 22 players total, including ten of their 12 picks in the top ten rounds. The remaining unsigned picks are sixth round pick Cody Bolton, who has indicated he is signing, and third round pick Dylan Busby, who was involved in the College World Series until last night, so he will be at least a week before he signs.

Just like yesterday, we could hear more signings before the night is through. Check back for updates, including possible bonus numbers later on.
UPDATE 8:25 PM: The Pirates also added 30th round pick Manny Berejano, 32nd rounder Hector Quinones and 33rd rounder Ryan Valdes. Berejano was the only one with college eligibility remaining. There will be more signings tomorrow, well at least one that I’m sure of, but most likely another group. All five players have been assigned to the GCL.
