Bucs Sign 16th Rounder Wesley Freeman

The Post-Gazette reports that the Pirates have signed Florida high school outfielder Wesley Freeman, their 16th-round pick.

Freeman is one of those high-upside picks who the Bucs probably had to pay extra to get, so this is a great sign that they're taking their negotiations with other high-upside picks seriously. Perfect Game USA says Freeman has "high ceiling tools" and an "excellent speed-strength combination." Baseball America reports that Freeman has "outstanding raw power with the ability to drive balls out of all parts of the ballpark."

By the way, I deleted another diary about this because it just copied the Post-Gazette's entire report. Please don't copy entire articles, and use blockquotes when you do quote other sources.
