The Pittsburgh Pirates have selected pitchers after their first pick, so who are some college arms that could be on their radar?
Major League Baseball is at a standstill because of the lockout. However, Pittsburgh Pirates and baseball fans as a whole still have college baseball, and watching college baseball means you might be watching baseball’s next superstar.
Some of baseball’s most significant MLB players came out of baseball or sports colleges around the United States. With the Pirates having an early-round selection, they’ll be in line to potentially grab one of the future superstars from college.
Although many of the highest-ranking draft prospects are high schoolers this year (Druw Jones, Termarr Johnson, Elijah Green), the draft class still has its fair share of college players. Which could lead to the Pittsburgh Pirates targeting a college player.
The Pittsburgh Pirates have gone with pitchers after their first overall pick in the last two drafts, so why not look at some college arms that the Bucs could look into when they’re on the clock?
