The Pittsburgh Pirates just announced two more draft signings today, 18th round pick RHP Stephan Meyer and 33rd round pick LHP Sean Keselica, which was announced by us earlier today on Twitter. Both players will report to Morgantown. You can see the player page here for Meyer and here for Keselica. The draft track has been updated and earlier today, we posted a season preview for Morgantown. Meyer was a starter this year in college, so he could figure in for the fifth starter spot for Morgantown, possibly getting extended innings in relief.

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.
