-Two mock drafts were released last week. Jonathan Mayo and Keith Law both have Deven Marrero going to the Pirates.

-Marrero went 8-for-12 with three doubles and a triple in the three game series against Washington this weekend. On the season he has a .279/.338/.436 line. He’s hitting for a .290/.350/.486 line in 107 at-bats in April and May.

Last week I looked at why scouting will be important for the upcoming draft.

Baseball America released their top 100 draft prospects. They also released numbers 101-200.


-Mike Zunino and Florida have finished their regular season. The SEC tournament will start on Tuesday.

-Deven Marrero and Arizona State finish their regular season with a three game series against Arizona, starting Friday.

Tim started Pirates Prospects in 2009 from his home in Virginia, which was 40 minutes from where Pedro Alvarez made his pro debut in Lynchburg. That year, the Lynchburg Hillcats won the Carolina League championship, and Pirates Prospects was born from Tim's reporting along the way. The site has grown over the years to include many more writers, and Tim has gone on to become a credentialed MLB reporter, producing Pirates Prospects each year, and will publish his 11th Prospect Guide this offseason. He has also served as the Pittsburgh Pirates correspondent for Baseball America since 2019. Behind the scenes, Tim is an avid music lover, and most of the money he gets paid to run this site goes to vinyl records.


Pirates Prospects has been independently owned and operated since 2009, entirely due to the support of our readers. The site is now completely free, funded entirely by user support. By supporting the site, you are supporting independent writers, one of the best Pittsburgh Pirates communities online, and our mission for the most complete Pirates coverage available.
