The Pittsburgh Pirates have the first overall pick in the 2021 MLB Draft, but their second round selection could see one of these three players being selected

Last year the Pittsburgh Pirates finished with a 19-41 record. They had the worst record in all of baseball and were the only team to finish with less than 20 wins. However, this means they got the first overall selection in 2021’s MLB Draft.

By this point, we already know who the Pittsburgh Pirates are likely going to select with the first overall pick. It’s going to likely be Vanderbilt ace Jack Leiter with Vandy’s other ace Kumar Rocker in consideration. Both Rocker and Leiter have been covered here plenty of times.

However, what might be more interesting is who the Bucs pick with their second round selection. This will be the 37th overall pick in the draft. So today, let’s take a look at three prospects who the Pirates could take with that second round pick.
