The #Pirates sign their 24th rd selection in the 2012 Draft OF Tyler Gaffney from Stanford University.— Pittsburgh Pirates (@Pirates) July 2, 2012
It's a little surprising that the Pirates signed Gaffney, their 24th-round pick, because he also had a reasonably large role on Stanford's football team as a running back, and he didn't hit well at all last year. I assume they had to go over $100,000 to sign him. Any overage would come out of their bonus pool. He's an outfielder.
