The Pittsburgh Pirates could see these three 2023 draft picks speed run through the minor leagues and be the first from the team's draft class to make their MLB debut
Most of the time, it takes three, sometimes four years, for a draft pick to make the Major Leagues, even college draftees, assuing they aren't set back by any injuries. Even for good prospects, it takes a few years. Of course, there are outliers to this. Some can get to the big leagues within two years, and in rare instances, a draft pick could reach the Major Leagues the following season after being taken.
The Pittsburgh Pirates have their fair share of prospects who are nearing Major League readiness. But most have spent the last few years in the minor leagues, including Jared Jones, Anthony Solometo, Quinn Priester, and Mike Burrows, to name a few. The Pirates’ 2023 draft class included some talented names, some of which could be fast-tracked to the bigs and debut within the 2024 or 2025 seasons.
