(If it happens, of course)

I know they can’t draft Appel without getting his written permission ahead of time, but I’m not sure if the rule is the same for guys that don’t sign out of high school and then go back into the draft three years later.

Barring something nuts, Pirates will get two very good players. I’d say there is a definite edge to position players in this class with pitching dropping off after the big three of Stanek, Appel and Manaea. Give me Bryant at 9 and Stewart at 14 and I’ll be all smiles

He changed his mind — i.e. reneged.
