2012 Pirates Draft Prospects Rundown: 3/19

It’s not something that Pirates fans want to hear, but the 2012 draft looks to be another year dominated with pitching at the top. Sure, there’s Mike Zunino, the two-way catcher from Florida who is tearing the cover off the ball. There’s Deven Marrero, a great defensive shortstop who has struggled with the bat the last few weeks at Arizona State. There’s a slim chance that Zunino falls to the Pirates at eighth...
