Pirates Sign Lithuanian Pitcher
By Mike Axisa [July 11, 2009 at 4:32pm CST]
According to Dejan Kovacevic of The Pittsburg Post-Gazette, the Pirates have signed 16-yr old righthander Dovydas Neverauskas of Lithuania. The 6'-3", 170 pounder is the first European amateur the club has ever signed. It doesn't look any player from Lithuania has ever played in the big leagues according to Baseball-Reference.com, but please correct me if I'm wrong.
The Pirates also inked 18-yr old catcher Dylan Child to a deal out of Australia.
