It's the first story on their front page right now. I'm kind of confused on this, though, as last time they reported the Pirates signing a player all the local reporters said nothing was done officially and nothing else ever came of it. They're still saying Wily Garcia has been signed, though, so who knows.
The Pirates strike again! Just as they did in the signing of Wily Garcia after the first DPL All-Star Game, the Pirates moved quickly to agree to terms with two eligible players after their performances in the recent 2nd DPL All Star Game. The Pirates agreed to terms with Isaac Sanchez for $180,000 and Miguel DeAza for $150,000 respectively, a typical signing bonus for players in the 7th-10th rounds in the Rule 4 Amateur Draft in the United States. Here are the scouting reports on each:
Isaac Sanchez, 17, is a RHP with an athletic 6'2" 180lb frame and clean arm action. His #1 pitch is a barry-zito-like curveball while his fastball works from 89-92 mph. Sanchez exhibits strong control of all pitches (FB, CB, and CH) and projects as an innings eating starting pitcher.
Miguel DeAza, 17, is a left-handed outfielder who demonstrates 5-tool potential. Although packaged into a smaller athletic body (5'11"), DeAza impresses with his above average tools. He runs 6.5-6.6. in the 60 yard dash, demonstrates a 60 arm from the outfield and makes consistent solid contact on the ball and has an enhanced feel for getting the barrel of the bat to the ball.
