The Pittsburgh Pirates today announced they have agreed to terms with catcher Reese McGuire,
the club’s first-round selection and 14th selection overall in the 2013 First-Year Player Draft. The announcement
was made by Senior Vice President, General Manager Neal Huntington and Joe DelliCarri,
Pirates Director of Scouting.
As a senior this year at Kentwood (WA) High School, McGuire hit .436 with 13 doubles, three triples,
four home runs and 20 RBI. He was rated as the fifth-best position player and the 12th-best player
overall in this year’s draft by Baseball America. He was also rated by the same publication as the
second-best “Defensive Player” among high school players eligible for the draft.
“We are thrilled that Reese has joined the Pirates family and are excited for him to immediately begin
his career within our organization,” said DelliCarri.
