    Cary-Grove graduate Quinn Priester is going pro.

    Drafted No. 18 overall by the Pittsburgh Pirates on June 3, the 6-foot-3, 202-pound right-hander signed Monday, the team announced via release.

    "It's really exciting. That's the best way I can put it," Priester said. "I know I'm ready for it and I'm super excited to get started. It just makes sense. I'm ready to get my career started and give myself the best chance to succeed and become a major-league pitcher, which is the goal I've set for myself."

    Priester has been committed to Texas Christian since his sophomore year in high school, but he has opted to turn professional. The Pirates will introduce him at a news conference at PNC Park on Tuesday at 9 a.m. CST.
