Rosado is one of the more interesting players taken on day three, although he might be a tough sign after turning down Colorado last year.
On day two of the MLB draft, the Pittsburgh Pirates went heavy on prep players, taking high schoolers with 15 of their first 19 selections on the day. 15 of their 29 picks on the day were pitchers, 16 if you count Aaron Brown, who is a two way player that was selected as a right fielder.
On day three, the Pirates did two things. They went heavy on college players, and they went heavy on bats. The Pirates took just two prep players in their first 13 picks of the day on Wednesday. They also took five pitchers in their last 20 picks. They selected position players with every pick from the 33rd round, all the way to the 41st round.
