The long-term options the Pirates would find it hard to pass over: McGuire, Denney, Kaminsky, Clarkin, JP Crawford and Stewart, It’s difficult for an organization to be overly strong up the middle. And the organization could use more lefthanded pitching and hitting.

Shipley seems pretty interesting too; maybe another college arm will stand out in the next 2 months.

It’s not like there’s a lot of top talent to choose from. From the Pirates’ perspective, picking 9th and 14th, the draft looks to have some good talent.

Good news!

I know it is a long shot for him to fall to #9, but he would be a nice get for the Bucs.
