Pirates Sign Pitcher Brian Sousa From Panama

The Pirates have signed 16-year-old righthander Brian Sousa from Panama for $160,000. He’s a sinker/slider pitcher with good feel for pitching for his age, and while he’s not a hard thrower, his 6-foot-3, 165-pound frame leaves plenty of room for him to add weight and potentially increase his velocity, with downhill plane already there. He trained with Francisco Nieto.
