Sixth Round Pick Tyler Eppler Signs With Pirates

We announced yesterday that sixth round draft pick Tyler Eppler has agreed to sign with the Pittsburgh Pirates and according to Chris Cotillo via Eppler himself, he has officially signed for a $200,000 bonus. That is slightly below the $217,900 slot, which saves the Pirates a little bit of money to go over-slot for other picks. Yesterday, top pick Cole Tucker was inked to a deal believed to be worth $1.8M, also below slot value for his spot. You can view Eppler’s player page here.
