WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE
The Pirates signed Ercolani during spring training of 2021.  He comes from San Marino, a country of just a little over 30,000 people.  He’s had success playing in Italy and for the Italian national under-15 team.  The Pirates were interested in him for a couple years but had to wait until he was old enough to sign.  He appears to have gotten at least a moderate bonus, but the amount isn’t known.  Ercolani throws 86-91 mph and probably can increase that as he gets older.  He also throws a curve and change that show promise.  The Pirates sent him initially to the Florida Complex League, which should be a fairly challenging assignment.
