Overall the Pittsburgh Pirat sspent just over $17 million on their 2023 Draft class. They failed to sign one high school player in Daniel Cuvet. Cuvet was ranked as a top 250 prospect by MLB Pipeline, but the Bucs were not able to work out a deal with him. While they could have been more aggressive in spots, it looks to be a college heavy Draft which could suggest their hopes to compete in the near term future.
