The Des Moines Register is reporting that the Pirates have agreed to terms with second-round pick Mitch Keller.  The paper states that he'll fly to Pittsburgh on Thursday.  Keller, a right-handed pitcher who attended high school in Iowa, had a commitment to North Carolina.  He figured to require significant overslot money to sign.
