Pirates Sign Ninth- and 17th-Round Picks

The Pirates have signed ninth-round pick Brandon Cumpton and 17th-rounder Ryan Hafner, according to an official release. Cumpton, 21, is a pitcher out of Georgia Tech who has struggled with his control; he’ll probably head to the Pirates’ short-season Class A team at State College. Hafner is a Missouri high school pitcher who had a commitment to Missouri State. He’s 6-foot-6 – the Pirates like their pitchers to be huge.
