Pirates Give Dovydas Neveraukas Major League Spring Invite

By Jason Shetler

Pitcher Dovydas Neveraukas has been given an invitation to Major League Spring Training by the Pirates, this according to mister-baseball.com.

The Pirates signed Neveraukas as an amateur back in 2010 out of Lithuania, which isn’t exactly a hotbed for baseball talent. The 23-year-old righty spent last season pitching for both Low A West Virginia and High A Bradenton, posting a 2.64 ERA along with a WHIP of 1.19 in 30 games pitched. Neveraukas has a good fastball, as he can reach 95 mph with it. He should begin this season back in Bradenton where he’ll likely be used as a swingman.
