MLB Draft /

The 2016 MLB draft is just a little under a month away, taking place on June 9. Using, Baseball America, and other various sites, I’ll be ranking each high school player by position over the next couple of weeks, starting with the arms.

The Pirates aren’t afraid to go with young position players, and they have taken a high school middle infielder the upper first round with Cole Tucker in 2013. However, in Neal Huntington’s tenure as general manager, Tucker is the only high school middle infielder he has taken in the first, second and third rounds.

Within the upcoming weeks, after giving out my top 8 high school players of each position, more analysis will be focused on who the Pirates could realistically target at picks number 22 and 41, along with their second round pick. The day before the draft will feature a breakdown of the typical Neal Huntington draft, as we look to provide quality Major League baseball draft previews.

It’s going to be a fun time like any other draft, and the Pirates have shown they won’t shy away from being aggressive in the first, or if not then, in rounds 2-5. So here is the first look, top eight high school middle infielders.
