Pirate Autograph Assistance Needed!

I was going through the collection of signatures that I acquired last month on my trip to Spring Training. I've been able to notate every signature except for one, and I thought I'd throw it out into the blogosphere to see if any of you can help me identify the autograph.

All I can tell you is it is from someone on the Pirates:

Who are you?!?!?

I would think the uniform number would be the key, but I can't tell if I'm looking at a 7 or 9 or even a squished 3. I think that big letter in front is supposed to be a C with perhaps an L following it. Anyone have any clue? I looked at the roster, but I just can't figure it out!

I will say I'm pretty convinced it is NOT Colin Moran. I have his signature elsewhere on this same ball, and I was able to match up with a Google search of his autographs.

Can anyone help me out? Any Pirate collectors that recognize this from one of their cards perhaps?

    1. No, definitely not Cervelli. We tried to get him, and he walked right by us. We even saw him signing after the game, but by the time we got there, he had moved on.

  2. I think it's Chad Kuhl. He wears #39 and his autograph starts off with with that giant "C." He has a certified auto in 2016 Bowman Chrome that you should be able to pull up on eBay for comparison.

    1. Dave, I have to say you nailed it! Looking at other images of his autograph, and it's obvious. That C is very distinctive, although to be honest I never would have made out the rest of the letters in his name in a million years! Thanks for the help!
