2011 Pirates MLB Draft Signings: Bucs Ink Eighth-Rounder Jason Creasy

The Pirates have signed eighth-round pick Jason Creasy, the team reports. (The tweet also notes the signing of fourth-rounder Colten Brewer, but that news came out a while ago.) Creasy is a high-school pitcher who had a commitment to North Carolina State. He’ll join the Pirates’ innumerable other teen pitchers in a short-season league somewhere, probably the Gulf Coast League.

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

4. Colten Brewer
6. Dan Gamache
8. Jason Creasy
10. Taylor Lewis
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
41. Jonathan Schwind

First-rounder Gerrit Cole, second-rounder Josh Bell and third-rounder Alex Dickerson remain unsigned. At least the first two of those will wait until the last second before the August 15 deadline, and Bell might not sign at all.
