Pittsburgh Pirates Draft: Five Players to Watch During Day Two
By Noah Wright
Day two of the MLB Draft is about to begin, so who are some names we could see the Pittsburgh Pirates consider throughout the draft?
For the Pittsburgh Pirates and the rest of baseball the MLB Draft is well underway. Yesterday was the first and second rounds, along with the competitive balance rounds and teams who offered players qualifying offers and rejected it. However, there’s still plenty of draft remaining. This year’s draft is a total of 20 rounds and spans across three days. We’re now heading into day two.
Yesterday, the Pittsburgh Pirates drafted Termarr Johnson with the fourth overall selection. They then used their competitive balance pick on college right-hander Thomas Harrington, then selected another college pitcher in Hunter Barco with the 44th overall pick and their second round selection. Harrington and Barco are likely under slot selections, so Ben Cherington might have something in store for day two of the draft.
Now that the next day of the draft is about to begin, who are some names to watch out for? There are still plenty of extremely talented players available and the Pittsburgh Pirates will surely be on the lookout and add another big name to the organization.
