According to Ben Badler of Baseball America, the Pirates have been linked to Juan Pie, a 16-year-old from Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic. He will be eligible to sign July 2nd, when the International signing period begins. Sources tell Pirates Prospects that Pie has been training at the Pirates academy in the Dominican Republic the past couple weeks, which appears to indicate that he could sign with them. 

Pie is an outfielder, who is listed at 6’2, 170 lbs. He is a left-handed hitter that can drive the ball to all fields, with the potential to hit for plus power. Pie will most likely be a corner outfielder, since he has an average throwing arm and does not cover much ground.
