You mentioned Machado and Lindor. I’ll also add Javier Baez to the list.  Correa’s not as good as Machado was at a similar point, but I think he’s got a much better bat than Lindor and a similar bat to Baez with a better chance to stick at SS. 

I don’t think he’d be a reach at #8 at all and other than Giolito and Kevin Gausman, he’d be my personal favorite that I want us to draft with our pick.

Take Correa or a pitcher

My No.1 Choice would be Zunino, but as was stated above, not much chance of him being around.

Here’s the link http://buriedtreasurepirates.blogspot.com/2011/12/early-draft-preview-carlos-correa-matt.html

There are Top 10 draft prospects (past and present) who don’t make it past A+ for a variety of reasons (injuries, wildness, lack of K zone judgement).  Correa may be a reach but in this situation where the Pirates aren’t able to take a chance on the Josh Bells of the world I think Correa can be very signable and if given enough patience he’ll be a bonafide star.  Correa would fit the same mold as Machado, Sano, Lindor, and Profar were before them in their respective teams.

Correa is what 17? There’s no tellin what he’ll look like when he reaches his prime.

HE IS NOT EVEN A TOP 10 PROSPECT RIGHT NOW!!! he may not even be top 15!! i just read a mock draft from mlb.com having him go at #22. he would be an reach at #8. and by the way, i doubt he has Miguel Cabrera upside because Cabrera is just a giant beast who plays corner positions, while Correa is not even that big

Jonathan Mayo from MLB.com has his Top 50 draft prospects online and he updates them VERY frequently because I have definitely noticed some big changes to his list. right now its at: #1 Appel, #2 Marrero, #3 Buxton, #4 Zunino, #5 Gausman, a new name for the top 15 in at #6 Albert Amora, #7 Lucas Giolito, #8 Lance McCullers, #9 Max Fried, #10 Kyle Zimmer
