By Jason Shetler

According to John Dreker of Pirates Prospects, the Pirates are interested in Mexican pitching prospect Rodrigo Garate.

Garate is a hard-throwing, 15-year-old righty, who has been a star pitcher in Mexico since he was nine years old. He’s participated in different international tournaments over the years where he’s both pitched and played the outfield. Garate is eligible to sign on July 2nd when the international signing period begins. Dreker mentioned that the New York Yankees and Tampa Bay Rays are said to have interest as well.
