2011 MLB Draft: Alex Dickerson Signs With Pirates

Tim Williams of PiratesProspects.com reports that the Pirates have signed third-round pick Alex Dickerson. Dickerson, a first baseman from Indiana, has lots of power potential and was ranked the No. 37 overall 2011 MLB Draft prospect by MLB.com. He doesn't have a lot of defensive value, but his bat appears to be good enough to make him an excellent pick in the third round. It appears he'll head to State College.

Here are the Pirates' signings so far.

3. Alex Dickerson
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 overall pick Gerrit Cole and second-rounder Josh Bell will almost certainly wait until August to sign, or not. (Cole is very likely to sign; Bell is likely to head to college.) Fifth-rounder Tyler Glasnow, seventh-rounder Jake Burnette, and ninth-rounder Clay Holmes also remain unsigned, as do several late-round picks who have some upside.
