2011 MLB Draft Signings: Pirates Sign Fourth-Rounder Colten Brewer

The Pirates have agreed to terms with fourth-round 2011 MLB Draft pick Colten Brewer, Pirates Prospects reports.

Brewer is the highest-ranked pick the Pirates have yet signed, but that’s not necessarily a surprise – he seems to have been selected at least in part because he lacked a major college commitment and therefore would not be especially hard to sign. That is, after drafting tough signs like Josh Bell in the second round and lots of pitchers with major college commitments in the later rounds, the Pirates went with some potentially easier-to-sign guys in the fourth through sixth rounds. (Tyler Glasnow, a high school pitcher with a commitment to the University of Portland, was their fifth-round pick; their sixth-round pick, Auburn third baseman Dan Gamache, has already signed.)

Like many of their other 2011 draft picks, Brewer is a tall, projectable pitcher. He’ll probably head to the Gulf Coast League.

Here are the Pirates’ signings so far:

4. Colten Brewer
6. Dan Gamache
10. Taylor Lewis
21. Alex Fuselier
22. Michael Jefferson
24. Brian Sharp
29. Kirk Singer
30. Matthew Benedict
31. Derek Trent
32. David Jagoditsh
41. Jonathan Schwind
