The Pittsburgh Pirates should keep an eye out for these two college players who could sign for under-slot value in this year's draft
A few months ago, we took a look at two players, a pitcher and position player, that the Pittsburgh Pirates could select for over slot money. But the Pirates may end up spending a whole lot of money in the first few rounds. Dylan Crews may break the all-time signing bonus record. However, that will cost the Pirates a lot of their draft money.
Because of that, the Pirates will likely have to select an under-slot player at some point. Every team picks a player with the intention of signing them for a deal lower than their draft slot value. If the Pirates need to save some money after drafting Crews, here is one pitcher and position player that may be on the Pirates’ radar.
