No team has been as aggressive signing over-slot players as the Pirates, and they added another one Friday. Pittsburgh signed 12th-rounder Jeff Inman for $425,000, well over MLB’s maximum $150,000 recommendation for picks after the fifth round.
A righthander, Inman went 2-6, 6.11 as a junior this spring at Stanford. But he performed well in the Cape Cod League last summer and offers a lot of upside. Even when he struggled in 2009, he had a low-90s fastball that touched 96 mph and flashed a solid curveball. He didn’t pitch in the season’s final month after coming down with shoulder tendinitis.
