2011 MLB Draft Signings: Pirates Ink 21st-, 41st-Round Picks

Following up on all the Pirates' 2011 MLB Draft signings we've already noted, the Bucs have agreed to terms with a couple more picks in the last 24 hours or so: 22nd-round pick Alex Fuselier, a center fielder, and 41st-rounder Jonathan Schwind, a catcher. Here's the full list of draft picks so far:

6. Dan Gamache 
10. Taylor Lewis 
21. Alex Fuselier 
24. Brian Sharp 
29. Kirk Singer 
30. Matthew Benedict 
31. Derek Trent 
41. Jonathan Schwind

Fuselier apparently will go to State College, while Schwind will head to rookie ball in the Gulf Coast League. I haven't seen any indication that the Pirates think of Fuselier as a prospect, but that's not necessarily surprising - players without a lot of leverage are often the first to sign. Scwind got a $20,000 bonus, and the Pirates will be paying for his last year of school; that's not a large amount, but it's something, so they must like him at least a little. That they sent him to State College indicates that he's a bit of a project.

Lewis, Trent and Singer have already made their debuts for State College, which opened its season on the road against Williamsport Friday night.
