TERMARR JOHNSON IS A MEMBER OF THE PITTSBURGH PIRATES!
Well not quite yet, but he is their first round selection at number four overall. In this feature episode of Rum Bunter Radio the guys are back to break down the Pittsburgh Pirates first pick in the draft, Termarr Johnson, and the other picks of the first round.
Baltimore Orioles no. 1 – Jackson Holiday, HS
Arizona Diamondbacks no. 2 – Druw Jones, HS
Texas Rangers no. 3 – Kumar Rocker
Pittsburgh Pirates no. 4 Termarr Johnson
Washington Nationals no. 5 Elijah Green
What to make of Johnson at number four?:
Johnson is a flat out hitter, and as a lefty second baseman he is a rarity to go this high in the draft. The Pirates took him as a shortstop and that is where he would like to play at the big league level, but one might tell you he is the future four to Oneil Cruz’ six in the biggs.
To begin the day, even in moments leading up to the draft, Johnson was thought to be the potential number one overall pick, but major league legacy and a shocker at number three allowed Pittsburgh to make the move on Johnson.
How should Pirates fans feel about this selection? Over the moon. Termarr Johnson is everything you want in a prep hitter and can get to Pittsburgh as fast as any other guy on the board.
Throughout the remainder of the episode the guys discuss the other picks of the top ten, and project the Pirates plans for the next round and onward in the draft.
Will the club have to try to save money at pick number thirty six, or will we see the aggression continue in later rounds?
Batten down the hatches, clear the decks, Termarr Johnson is a future Pittsburgh Pirate.
