Welker Signs Contract-Hamblin Has Big Day

Duke Welker, who injured his foot during the South Carolina game in the SEC tournament, signed a deal with the Pittsburgh Pirates Tuesday. He’ll be rehabbing at their spring training complex for 2 weeks when he’ll go to their New York-Penn League club.

Danny Hamblin had a nice debut in the Athletics Organization Tuesday. He went 2 for 4 Tuesday with 3 RBI, capped with a two-run double in the Vancouver (B. C. ) Canadians’ season opener against Tri-City, Wash. Vancouver plays in the short-season Northwest League.

They join Jacob Julius (Orioles), Brian Walker (Angels), as Hogs who have signed pro deals since the draft.
