Reese McGuire, Pirates could soon agree to deal

As tweeted by Travis Sawchik, catcher Reese McGuire is expected to receive a physical and sign with the Pirates tomorrow, according to the player’s high school coach.

It’s kind of interesting that the news comes from such a source, but this type of “leak,” if you will, isn’t uncommon. There’s no reason for the coach to make this up.

McGuire was the 14th overall selection in the June 6, 2103 first year player draft. If he does sign, he’ll most likely play with the short-season A-ball Jamestown Jammers.

It’s obviously great to get him signed well before the July 12 deadline at 5 p.m. and now the Bucs can focus on their other first-rounder, HS outfielder Austin Meadows.
