The first day of the 2014 amateur draft was yesterday and the Pittsburgh Pirates added four new players to the system. Below, you will find highlight videos of all four players. The Pirates Prospect player pages for all four players can be found in the link under their name. For a recap of the draft from day one, check this link here. Three of the videos were provided by Big League Futures, a site that does fantastic work getting videos and scouting reports all season long. The Mitch Keller video was from Baseball Prospectus.

John Dreker

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.
