Pirates sign South African shortstop

There is an interesting article in today’s PG about Mpho Ngoepe, a switch-hitting shortstop the Pirates signed out of South Africa about a month ago. Ngoepe is 18-years-old, 5’9″ and 165 pounds. He is a long way from Pittsburgh, and the odds are against him making it that far. But this is another nice reminder that the team’s international scouting has greatly improved with the new management team.
