In a continuation of potential Pittsburgh Pirates draft picks in 2020 we will take a look at rounds two and three where the real fun begins
The Pittsburgh Pirates have found themselves in a fortunate situation in the upcoming June MLB Draft. They own not just one pick in the second round, but two picks at number 31 and 44 overall. They can thank the competitive balance rule for their found luck. Said luck that will give the team a great opportunity to had high end talent to their farm system early in the draft.
While the Pirate farm system is better than a lot of folks realize, it could still use some re-stockpiling of talent. Since becoming general manager in November Ben Cherington has added some top notch talent to the Pirate farm system to help this this process. These three potential draft picks in the second and third round of this June’s MLB Draft should help with this process.
