The highly anticipated 2021 MLB first-year player draft is here! The Pittsburgh Pirates will be on the clock tonight starting at 7:00 with the first overall pick.
In this Rum Bunter Radio special, Trey Yanity and Nick Caporoso team up to break down the 2021 MLB Draft and fill you in on everything, you need to know ahead of the big day for the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Now of course the Pirates do have the number one overall pick in this draft and have heard their fair share of opinions from everyone in the baseball world on who they should select. But before the conversation could even begin on pick one, Nick and Trey give you a look at Ben Cherrington’s overall draft strategy, and how this year will look different than last.
It’s been a debate that has seen many different twists and turns. Should it be Jack Leiter, the elite pitcher from Vanderbilt? Or his teammate Kumar Rocker, the original presumed number one overall selection.
What has appeared as the most likely situation over the past several weeks, one of two high school shortstops; Jordan Lawler and Marcelo Mayer.
The Buccos have pick number 37, along with pick 64, as the episode continues the crew previews the Pirates’ strategy in the second round and Competitive Balance Round. These two picks will come on Monday to start off Day 2.
To close out the show Nick and Trey discuss and predict what will happen the rest of the way, where the top three go, and all things MLB draft.
