The Pittsburgh Pirates need some position player talent in the system. Overall, they have very few position players who could be up within the next 1-3 years and have the potential to make a significant impact. The weakest position is arguably any of the outfield spots, as they only have one truly good outfielder right now: No. 11 prospect Lonnie White Jr. Others, like Shalin Polanco and Estuar Suero, have talent but are also very young, especially Suero.

The Pirates could get someone in this year’s draft that they could potentially move through the minor leagues quickly and make a noteworthy impact at the major league level by taking a college outfielder. So, who should they consider as one of their draft picks in 2024?
