The 2020 MLB draft is here! On this Rum Bunter Radio draft special Nick, Trey and former staff writer David Slusser project and break down each of the first six picks to begin the episode.
Spencer Torkelson has separated himself from the pack, but is there reason to believe that another young hopeful is deserving of being the number one pick? As each host gives his thoughts on the top five be ready for analysis that will have you fully prepared for Wednesday’s festivities. You may leave surprised at who the three think we will go in the top ten. So with the seventh pick, the Pittsburgh Pirates select…
Several names become clear and certain scenarios are played out as Nick and David dive into the Pittsburgh Pirates first selection of the 2020 draft.
Slusser then gives his in-depth analysis of how rounds two and three will go, before taking you inside the mind of an MLB scout and how Pittsburgh’s new hires will play a role in this year’s draft.
Every general manager has a “trend” when selecting the players they want, and after stops in Boston and Toronto where Ben Cherington led the draft, Pirate Nation is eager to see how his former techniques carry over to the Burgh.
As we close out the show, listen in as the guys give a lesson on why projectability plays such a key role in deciding who to take. Picks in the 100s may not seem as exciting as the selections made in the first round, but find out why these late picks could make or break the farm system and Major League roster at some point down the road.
This is your 2020 MLB draft source, and Rum Bunter is ready to break down in-depth each of Pittsburgh’s selections and the draft as a whole. Join us later in the week for more content as we gear up for June 10th.
