MLB Draft Signings 2012: Pirates Officially Sign Jon Sandfort

The Pirates have officially signed third-round 2012 MLB Draft pick Jon Sandfort, a Florida high school pitcher.

Pirates sign 3rd round pick Jon Sandfort (RHP). He was 8-1 with a 0.92 ERA as a senior this year at Winter Springs (FL) High School.

Sandfort said shortly after the draft that he was eager to sign, and there had already been rumblings that he had reached an agreement with the Pirates, so this is no surprise.

Sandfort is yet another tall, “projectable” pitcher. The Pirates have drafted lots of these types of pitchers in the past few years, and none of them have really done much yet, but hey — maybe this is the one. He’ll likely start the season in the Gulf Coast League.

There was no immediate word on how much Sandfort would be paid.

Here’s a full list of the Pirates’ official signings so far.
