Pirates Sign Outfielder Nathan Tomaszewski

According to Baseball America, the Pittsburgh Pirates have signed outfielder Nathan Tomaszewski out of Independent Ball. He went undrafted out of college and has spent the last two seasons playing Independent Ball in three different leagues. He has good size at 6’4″, 220 pounds and can play all four corner positions, spending the most time at third base and in right field. Tomaszewski is 23 years old and played college ball at LeTourneau University.

He will likely open the season with one of the short-season league teams, either Bristol or Jamestown. With an extra affiliate this year, you can expect some more players like this, possibly college players that go undrafted this June.

John started working at Pirates Prospects in 2009, but his connection to the Pittsburgh Pirates started exactly 100 years earlier when Dots Miller debuted for the 1909 World Series champions. John was born in Kearny, NJ, two blocks from the house where Dots Miller grew up. From that hometown hero connection came a love of Pirates history, as well as the sport of baseball.

When he didn't make it as a lefty pitcher with an 80+ MPH fastball and a slider that needed work, John turned to covering the game, eventually focusing in on the prospects side, where his interest was pushed by the big league team being below .500 for so long. John has covered the minors in some form since the 2002 season, and leads the draft and international coverage on Pirates Prospects. He writes daily on Pittsburgh Baseball History, when he's not covering the entire system daily throughout the entire year on Pirates Prospects.
