Keller, a pitcher who was taken with the No. 64 pick in the draft, will receive a $1 million signing bonus from the team, which is higher than the assigned value of $866,800 for the pick.

A right-hander from Xavier High School in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Keller is the second of the Pirates' top picks to sign. Cole Tucker, a shortstop taken with the 24th pick in the draft, agreed to a deal that included a $1.8 million signing bonus on Monday.
