2014-Draft

Prospect Highlights: First Look at Four More New Pirates Draft Picks

All three days of the draft are finally in the books and the Pittsburgh Pirates selected 42 players total. It’s highly unlikely they sign them all, even with the large amount of college seniors picked on Saturday. Until the signing deadline passes though, we will still keep tabs on all of them. After the first two rounds concluded, we took a look at highlights of the top four picks, giving you a chance to get to see them in action. On day two, we picked four of the more interesting players and highlighted them. Today we wrap it up with four players from the last day of the draft.

You can check out full draft coverage of day three here, plus take a look at the nine players that we thought were the most interesting selections. Videos below are from YouTube courtesy of Jheremy Brown, Perfect Game, Rkyosh007 and Scout.com. If it looks like I focused in on just pitchers, well that’s just because good/recent videos of players from day three are hard to find. You can read more about each player on their Pirates Prospects player page, which is linked under their name.

Gage Hinz, RHP – 11th Rd.

Frank Duncan, RHP – 13th Rd.

Colin Welmon, RHP – 34th Rd.

John was born in Kearny, NJ, hometown of the 2B for the Pirates 1909 World Championship team, Dots Miller. In fact they have some of the same relatives in common, so it was only natural for him to become a lifelong Pirates fan. Before joining Pirates Prospects in July 2010, John had written numerous articles on the history of baseball while also releasing his own book and co-authoring another on the history of the game. He writes a weekly article on Pirates history for the site, has already interviewed many of the current minor leaguers with many more on the way and follows the foreign minor league teams very closely for the site. John also provides in person game reports of the West Virginia Power and Altoona Curve.
