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, but please correct me if I'm wrong.

The Pirates also inked 18-yr old catcher Dylan Child to a deal out of Australia.
