2012 MLB Draft Signings: Wyatt Mathisen, Dalton Friend Reportedly Agree To Terms With Pirates

Pirates Prospects reports/notes that the Pirates have agreed to terms with two more 2012 draft picks, second-rounder Wyatt Mathisen and 12th-rounder Dalton Friend. It's not yet clear how much either player will be getting.

Both players profile as prospects. Mathisen was the third player the Pirates selected, but you could make a case that he was the second-most-interesting player they drafted, behind No. 8 overall pick Mark Appel. He was rated as one of the best catching prospects in the draft. He was committed to the University of Texas, so it's great that the Pirates were able to snag him.

Friend is a left-handed pitcher out of a Missouri junior college. Baseball America ranked him the No. 328 prospect in the draft.

Assuming all the reported agreements come through (none of the signings are official yet), the Pirates have the following players in the fold.

2. Wyatt Mathisen
3. Jon Sandfort
6. Eric Wood
7. Jacob Stallings
9. D.J. Crumlich
12. Dalton Friend
