Pirates sign trio of players from Mexico

| Thursday, Oct. 17, 2013, 6:54 p.m.

The Pirates signed three teenage players from Mexico this week; Mikell Grandberry, Eumir Sepulveda and Carlos Bustamante.

Grandberry, 18, is a strong defensive catching prospect who is regarded as having the highest ceiling of the group. Bustamante, 18 and Sepulveda, 17, are right-handed pitchers from the Yucatan Lions in the Mexican League.

The pitchers were signed by Pirates scout Jesus Valdez. No terms were immediately available.

The players will debut in the Dominican Summer League next summer.
