2017 DSL Season Preview: Pirates Have an Inexperienced Team with Some...

High-Priced International Signing Adjusts to First Season of Pro Ball

Last July, the Pittsburgh Pirates signed two players out of the Bahamas. They signed 18-year-old infielder Kyle Simmons and 16-year-old outfielder Larry Alcime. While they were signed at the same time, the Simmons signing flew under the radar (we announced it a couple hours later). Alcime received a $350,000 bonus, which was the second highest […]
