The 21-year-old was the Pirates’s fourth round pick (108th overall) in the 2020 First-Year Player Draft.

“Jack hasn’t been pitching for very long but already shows very promising stuff with a fastball/slider combination that we believe has a chance to be very effective at the professional level,” said Pirates General Manager Ben Cherington. “He’s a strong, physical pitcher with strong character and work ethic. We look forward to working with Jack in a Pirates uniform.”
