The Pittsburgh Pirates signed two draft picks on Monday afternoon, getting 17th round draft pick Mason Martin and 27th round draft pick David Lee, who just won the College World Series with Florida. Martin played some first base in high school, but the Pittsburgh Pirates announced him as an outfielder. Lee is a 21-year-old right-handed pitcher. Both players have been assigned to the GCL Pirates.
Here are the player pages for both players with more information.
The Pirates have now signed 37 of their 42 draft picks this year. You can check out our draft tracker here. The draft signing period ends on Friday. It appears right now that the only other possibility to sign is 12th round draft pick Hunter Wolfe. The other four have committed to going back to school. If we get any bonus information for either player, we will post it here. Martin had a commitment to Gonzaga and will likely require an over-slot deal.
UPDATE: Jim Callis reports that Martin received $350,000 to sign. That means that the Pirates can offer $349,395 to Hunter Wolfe before going 5% over their bonus pool. Or in other words, that’s the most they will offer, but it’s possible that he signs for less. I’ll note that we don’t know all of the bonus amounts, but every over-slot amount has been announced, so it’s safe to assume that $349,395 is the highest they can offer.
