Hanson is probably Neil Walker replacement at 2b.

It is kind of like a Pirates Prospects for the MLB Draft. The guy over there is a pretty decent dude and posts mock drafts from websites all over the internet. Also, it is a good place get information on all the draft picks.

A couple of other draft gurus have the Pirates taking a Pitcher, Jake Barrett or  SS, Kenny Diekroeger.My choice at this point in time would be Victor Roache
