Neal Huntington on the Upcoming Amateur Draft

Pittsburgh Pirates GM Neal Huntington spoke with the media recently about the Pittsburgh Pirates approach with this upcoming draft.

Brandon Cumpton is off to a staggeringly strong start this season. However, that is not something that he is generally accustomed to. This is a trend that holds up statistically as well, as 2014 is the only successful April that Cumpton has compiled in professional baseball. In 2013, Cumpton allowed 16 earned runs in 28 innings with Altoona and Indianapolis. In 2012, he allowed 10 earned runs in 25 innings with Altoona. But the most...
