Cody Bolton told The Record, his local newspaper, that he has agreed to sign with the Pirates.
Bolton was the Pirates sixth round selection out of Tracy High School in California. Baseball America considered him unsignable, since he had a strong commitment to pitch at the University of Michigan. Bolton is a 6’3 right-hander and is very projectable. His fastball sits in the low-90’s, topping out at 94 mph, while his slider is an above average pitch.
