A day after spending $1,125,000 on eighth-rounder Colton Cain and $600,000 on fourth-rounder Zack Dodson, the Pirates went even higher to land another top draft talent. Pittsburgh agreed to terms Saturday with sixth-rounder Zack Von Rosenberg for $1.2 million, the highest bonus outside of the first round so far this year.
A righthander at Zachary (La.) HS, Von Rosenberg won state championship-clinching games in each of his four high school seasons (including his freshman year spent at Barbe HS). He’s very projectable at 6-foot-5 and 205 pounds and has advanced command of a lively 88-91 mph fastball, a curveball and a changeup. He turned down a scholarship from defending College World Series champion Louisiana State to turn pro.
