There's a baseball movie coming out this May, and it's called "Million Dollar Arm." The movie stars Jon Hamm as agent J.B. Bernstein, who decides to hold a reality competition in India to find and MLB-caliber pitcher in a previously untapped region of talent.
Here's the trailer.
The two players who came over with Bernstein were Rinku Singh and Dinesh Patel, both of whom were signed by the Pirates.
Patel lasted only 15 appearances in 2009-10 for the Rookie Ball Pirates. He was 1-0 with a 5.27 ERA in 13 2/3 innings.
Singh hung around from 2009-12, advancing as far as Class A. In parts of four minor-league seasons, he went 10-6 with a 2.99 ERA and 1.26 WHIP.
