He will be a key player on the Jamestown team.

If he can hit he’ll be a big league regular. That’s the question with him. Also, he was a high profile guy having played on the US National College Team.

FWIW BA rankings of Pirates picks

6 Austin Meadows
10 Reese McGuire
55 Blake Taylor
75 JaCoby Jones
114 Trae Arbet
144 Adam Frazier
157 Cody DIckson
241 Bryan Baker (40th round)

no one else in the Top 300

If you get one good starter and 2-3 ‘help’ players, it is a good draft. It sounds like we have that, if not more.

I was surprised we didn’t try to re-draft a couple guys, but….

Now we sit back and see who signs.

Hopefully 2 or 3 will develop into major leaguers eventually.

I’m happy to see the Pirates go for upside. Still, it is hard to get real excited since most or all of these guys are 4-5 years from the majors. I hope they can get them all signed.
