One of the biggest features of the site during the draft pick signing period is the Draft Pick Signing Tracker. The tracker follows how many players have been signed, which players have been signed, any reported bonus amounts, and total spending in the draft. We update the tracker immediately after a player is signed, and since Pirates Prospects broke the most draft signings last year, we often have the tracker updated before the official announcements come out.
Be sure to check out the tracker, which includes links to all of the player pages, bookmark it, and check back daily throughout the draft pick signing period in order to get the most up-to-date information on the progress of the 2011 draft. The tracker can be accessed below:
UPDATE: I apologize. The link above was to the wrong version. It’s now updated with the right destination.
Tim started Pirates Prospects in 2009 from his home in Virginia, which was 40 minutes from where Pedro Alvarez made his pro debut in Lynchburg. That year, the Lynchburg Hillcats won the Carolina League championship, and Pirates Prospects was born from Tim's reporting along the way. The site has grown over the years to include many more writers, and Tim has gone on to become a credentialed MLB reporter, producing Pirates Prospects each year, and will publish his 11th Prospect Guide this offseason. He has also served as the Pittsburgh Pirates correspondent for Baseball America since 2019. Behind the scenes, Tim is an avid music lover, and most of the money he gets paid to run this site goes to vinyl records.
