Pirates Sign Dominican Pitcher Adonis Pichardo

The Pirates have signed 18-year-old righthander Adonis Pichardo for $105,000. Since Pichardo is 18, he had previously been eligible to sign, but he’s a former outfielder who’s only been pitching for about eight months. He’s still learning how to pitch but he has good arm action and life on his fastball, which has been up to 92 mph. He trained with Julian Yan.
