New Draft Prospect Trackers

I added several new draft prospect trackers to the site today. The new additions bring the total number of draft trackers to ten. A few of these guys have little to no chance of being drafted by the Pirates, unless they see their stock fall on draft day. That’s not totally out of the question, since it has happened with a few players the last couple of years, most recently with Anthony Rendon falling in the 2011 draft.

  • There are ever so many variables concerning players eligible for the draft, but I wonder what the level of competition does to level the field. I see a Ga Southern pitcher and I believe Roache is a Ga Southern OF mentioned here and there. Then there are HS kids all over the place, but Ga has produced some well known choices in years past. I think the Pirates drafting the pitcher from Alaska and him not being in baseball any more got me thinking about this.
