Pirates sign 6th rounder Dan Gamache

Baseball America is reporting that the Pittsburgh Pirates have signed their 6th round draft pick, Dan Gamache. Gamache will receive a signing bonus of $125,000 and is the first player the Pirates have signed out of this year’s draft.

Gamache is known primarily as a defensive 3B. His numbers this season for Auburn were not all that impressive after his 2010 season was shortened due to surgery on his hand.

Most likely, Gamache will report to State College as they open up later this week.
