Pirates sign 2nd-round pick Blake Taylor, 3 others

Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE

The Pirates just announced the signing of five more players from the 2013 draft. Bonus figures are not yet available.

Name (Round) - Position - Affiliate Assignment

Blake Taylor (2) - LHP - GCL Pirates

Trae Arbet (5) - INF - GCL Pirates

Shane Carle (10) - RHP - Jamestown

Danny Collins (13) - INF - Jamestown

Max Rossiter (15) - C - Jamestown

From Charlie's draft recaps

Blake Taylor - "He's a big lefty with a thick lower body who can get into the 90s and has the makings of a good breaking pitch. There will be work to do with his control and his changeup, and he's 17, so it'll be awhile before we see him, but there was consensus among the experts that he was a second-round talent, so it's no surprise that he went there."

Trae Arbet - "Athletic California middle infielder. He has a strong arm. Baseball America ranked him the No. 113 prospect in the draft."

Shane Carle - "a righty from Long Beach State who gets sinking action on his fastball but didn't particularly throw hard this spring."

Max Rossiter - Charlie covered his signing earlier today.
