Pirates sign 21st round draft pick Alex Fuselier

Published on June 17, 2011 by in Draft

Pirates Prospects is reporting the Pirates have agreed to terms with 21st round draft pick Alex Fuselier.

Fuselier, 21, is a center fielder out of Louisiana-Lafayette and is expected to report to State College. He hit .308/.419/.467 his junior year with 4 homers and 14 stolen bases.

WTM from Pirates Prospects has this to say about Fuselier:

Fuselier’s numbers in college weren’t as impressive as what you typically see, but his school seems to have played in a slightly low-offense environment.  He was the team’s second-best hitter in his junior year.  He saw a spike in his power in 2011, mostly from extra base hits, which is notable considering the new bats.  He also pitched some in college.  He’s a good all around athlete, with a good arm, but will likely serve as an organizational guy in the Pirates system.

Fuselier is the 8th player from the 2011 Draft to sign with the Pirates.
