#Pirates sign three more draft picks, including 5th-rounder Adrian Sampson and 9th-rounder D.J. Crumlich.— Bill Brink (@BrinkPG) June 19, 2012
Crumlich, a senior shortstop out of UC-Irvine, was their ninth-rounder. They probably saved some money on him, but we don't know that for sure. UPDATE: Crumlich gets $5,000, saving about $124,000 against the pool. Adrian Sampson gets $250,000, which is right around the pool recommendation. Chris Diaz gets $100,000, which is the most the Pirates can give him without it counting against the pool. The Pirates have saved about $600,000 against the pool to use on Mark Appel and other picks.
