According to Baseball America, the Pirates have signed infielder Victor Ngoepe.
Ngoepe is the younger brother of Gift Ngoepe, who the Pirates signed back in 2008 out of South Africa, making him the first black South African player to sign a professional contract. Victor is a soon-to-be 18-year-old, and just like his brother, is an infielder. He participated in the World Cup last summer for Team South Africa.
