The Pittsburgh Pirates announced on Monday night that they have signed 20th round draft pick Brenden Dixon, a shortstop out of Weatherford College. They have now signed eight players from this draft class. No bonus amount has been announced yet for Dixon, but if it’s announced tonight we will post an update here.
Dixon announced five days ago on his Twitter page that he was signing with the Pirates. He had a commitment to transfer to Arkansas for the 2022 season.
After a long few days, one of my lifelong dreams came true. With that being said, I have decided to forego my time at Arkansas, and sign with the Pittsburgh Pirates. Thank you to everyone who has helped me along this journey, and can’t wait to get to work.
