2012 MLB Draft Signings: Pirates, Barrett Barnes Agree To Terms

The Pirates have agreed to terms with supplemental first-round MLB Draft pick Barrett Barnes. Barnes will get a bonus of $1 million.

Barnes is an outfielder from Texas Tech who has good speed, some power, and a chance to stick in center field. He becomes one of the Pirates’ better hitting prospects.

MLB’s bonus recommendation for Barnes’ pick was about $1,136,000, so the Pirates are saving about $136,000 against the pool that they might be able to use on first-rounder Mark Appel or on another draft pick.

The Pirates have not yet officially announced the move. Here are the draft picks whose signings have officially been announced.
