Pirates agree to terms with 15th-rounder Rossiter

Justin K. Aller

Pirates Prospects reports that the Bucs have agreed to terms with 15th-rounder Max Rossiter. Here's the full list of signings so far.

Cody Dickson - (4) - LHP
Chad Kuhl (9) - RHP
Beau Wallace (12) - INF
Max Rossiter (15) - C
Justin Topa (17) - RHP
Jeff Roy (18) - OF
Brett McKinney (19) - RHP
Adam Landecker (21) - INF
Cameron Griffin (23) - LHP
Justin Maffei (25) - OF
Michael Fransoso - (27) - INF

Rossiter, from Arizona State, was a college senior. Seniors typically have little leverage, and therefore usually sign quickly. There's no real reason to expect Rossiter to be a prospect, since he's a late-round pick whose offense flagged badly in his senior year, hitting .272/.364/.359 after batting .326 as a junior.

UPDATE (by WTM) -- The Pirates have also announced the following signings in addition to the ones above:

Blake Taylor - (2) - LHP
Trae Arbet - (5) - SS
Shane Carle - (10) - RHP
Danny Collins - (13) - 1B
