Pirates agree to terms with 45th overall pick Barrett Barnes

Published on June 14, 2012 by in Draft

 

This news is a whole lot better than pretty much anything else we’ve been hearing about the Pirates in the past couple days. Barnes, an OF out of Texas Tech, was rated as the 41st best prospect heading into this draft by Baseball America.

The $1 million signing bonus is also below the slot value of his pick ($1,136,400), so that is some more money the Bucs can use elsewhere (read: Appel or Buehler), if needed.

Barnes will fly to Pittsburgh for a physical Friday and will most likely head to State College to start his career as the Spikes begin play on Monday.
