The Pittsburgh Pirates have signed prep outfielder Conner Uselton, who was selected with the 72nd overall pick last week in the draft. Uselton made the announcement on Twitter this afternoon. You can read about him in the article posted last Monday after he was drafted. No bonus amount was announced and the Pirates likely won’t officially announce the signing until tomorrow. If a bonus figure comes out tonight, we will update it here.
