2011 MLB Draft: Pirates Agree To Terms With 12th-Round Pick Candon Myles; Gerrit Cole And Josh Bell Await

The Pirates have agreed to terms with 12th-round pick Candon Myles, a fast high school outfielder from Texas. Myles had a college commitment to Howard, so he’s probably going to get a good-sized bonus, as will all the other signings from here on out.

Here’s a list of the players the Pirates have signed so far.

3. Alex Dickerson
4. Colten Brewer
5. Tyler Glasnow
6. Dan Gamache
7. Jake Burnette
8. Jason Creasy
10. Taylor Lewis
12. Candon Myles
18. Josh Poytress
21. Alex Fuselier
22. Michael Jefferson
23. Jordan Cooper
24. Brian Sharp
27. Ryan Hornback
29. Kirk Singer
30. Matthew Benedict
31. Derek Trent
32. David Jagoditsh
33. Chris Lashmet
37. Rodarrick Jones
41. Jonathan Schwind

The two big fish remaining, obviously, are first-overall pick Gerrit Cole and second-round pick Josh Bell. Cole is very likely to sign, whereas the Pirates’ chances of landing Bell are less clear, but neither of them will sign until minutes before the deadline on August 15. There are also several other players who might receive big bonuses, such as 15th-rounder Kody Watts and 17th-rounder Aaron Brown.
