The Pirates have signed first baseman/outfielder Joey Terdoslavich to a minor league deal, which includes an invite to MLB Spring Training, this according to Tim Williams of Pirates Prospects.
Terdoslavich was a sixth round selection of the Atlanta Braves in the 2010 MLB Draft. At one point, he was ranked as high as #11 among Braves prospects by Baseball America in 2012. The big league level has been a struggle for him however, as he’s posted just a .620 OPS in parts of three seasons with the Braves from 2013 to 2015.
Last season, Terdoslavich played for the Baltimore Orioles AA and AAA affiliates Bowie and Norfolk. Combined with both clubs, he put up an OPS of .724 in 126 games. The Pirates will likely use Terdoslavich as organizational depth for either Altoona or Indianapolis.
