Pirates Unlikely To Offer Major League Deal To Alvarez

According to Dejan Kovacevic of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the Pirates still have not offered top draft pick Pedro Alvarez a Major League contract.  Kovacevic does not expect the Bucs to do so but won't rule it out.  It's rumored that Giants' top pick Buster Posey will get a big league deal, while #1 pick Tim Beckham signed a minor league contract.  Of course, Posey was a college player while Beckham signed out of high school.

Despite that possible issue, Kovacevic speaks of "palpable optimism" for a deal on the Pirates side.  Yahoo's Jeff Passan writes about the turnabout for Frank Coonelly, who now gets to deal with Scott Boras' over-slot demands firsthand.
