Pirates "Set to Sign" Colton Cain

New, 214 comments

The Post-Gazette reports that the Bucs will soon sign Texas high school pitcher Colton Cain, one of the toughest signs of their 2009 draft and a big key (along with the already-signed Trent Stevenson and especially sixth-rounder Zack Von Rosenberg) in determining whether this draft looks good in the short term. This is great news.

Also via the Post-Gazette, Jose Ascanio will be promoted, taking the place of Steven Jackson. Pat has reported that Ascanio looked excellent in his first start at AAA, so it'll be interesting to get a good look at him.

 

Sorry this is short; I'm posting before the bad-hotel-internet monster eats me again.
