Our previous group is now at Hi A and learning the intensity and skill level that is expected at Hi A. Moroff as a 16th Rounder out of HS is particulary last year is showing a fantastic understanding of the strike zone with 11 Walks and only 13 K’s So, Hansen went through Lo A last year as a 19 year old switchhitting SS with some excellent offensive skills, and Moroff is following , also as a switchhitter, and possibly a better eye at the plate. I think the Pirates can remove Shortstop as a need in this draft, and guys like Eric Wood and Wyatt Mathison could remove the need to draft a C/3B.
