The Pirates have signed their second and third round draft picks, Braxton Ashcraft and Connor Kaiser.

Ashcraft, a right-handed pitcher out of a Texas high school, was the 51st overall pick in the draft. Kaiser is a shortstop from Vanderbilt.

The Pirates have now signed 29 of their 41 draft picks. The top remaining unsigned picks are supplemental first rounder Gunnar Hoglund (prep RHP), fifth rounder Grant Koch (C) and tenth rounder Mike Gretler (3B). Koch and Gretler are still competing in the college world series.

UPDATE: Ashcraft got well over the slot amount.

Kaiser signed for slighly under the slot amount.
