WTM’S PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES

Keating has put up some solid numbers his last two years in high school, hitting for average and displaying a lot of power and speed.  He played shortstop, although the Pirates announced him as a third baseman.  He has a commitment to Southern Miss, and it seems like he will be impossible to sign.  He is quoted as saying he always wanted to play college baseball, and would be attending USM even though he expected to be drafted.  Baseball America did not rate him among the top 500 draft prospects, nor among the top 20 prospects in Mississippi.
