The Pittsburgh Pirates have chosen many different players who have become successful Major League players. But did you know they drafted these four? There is a good chance that you did not!
The MLB draft is where many teams find their next star. That’s how the Pittsburgh Pirates found players such as Neil Walker, Andrew McCutchen, Gerrit Cole, Jameson Taillon, and many more. But, sometimes, the team is unable to sign players and they get redrafted the next year. Other times, they are traded before they make their debut, and sometimes their tenure with the team that drafted them is just forgotten.
Every MLB team can make an All-Star quality lineup and pitching staff from players that their fans have likely forgotten that their team drafted. Unfortunately, the Pirates are no different than the rest of baseball when it comes to this.
Today, let’s go over yet another list of names you likely forgot the Pittsburgh Pirates drafted. If you are looking for a specific name that the Pirates drafted not many know about, I probably talked about it in parts one or two. But it would likely be a lot less painful for you if you did not reopen some of those wounds.
