Pirates Select LHP Julian Bosnic with Their 14th Round Pick

With their 14th round pick in the 2022 MLB draft, the Pittsburgh Pirates selected left-handed pitcher Julian Bosnic out of South Carolina. He’s from Pittsburgh, Pa.

Bosnic was a 16th round pick of the San Francisco Giants last year, but chose to go back to the University of South Carolina. He’s a senior, who turns 23 in December. He stands 6’3″, 218 pounds. Bosnic was a two-way player entering college, but missed his freshman season due to Tommy John surgery. He threw 6.2 scoreless innings in 2020, though it came with eight walks. He had a 2.84 ERA and 78 strikeouts in 50.2 innings in 2021. He was injured during Spring Training for his college season and had minor elbow surgery that ended his season before it started. He is committed for Arkansas next season if he doesn’t sign.

A scouting report from 2021 says Bosnic gets his fastball up to 95 MPH and “he has great off-speed stuff”.

Hope we can sign him. We need LHP!

According to BA, Bosnic’s FB averages 91 and has reached 98. His CU, SL and CH all have high whiff rates, but he throws the FB 80% of the time.


First impressions are that we’re getting a number of interesting arms today, but especially Bosnic and Fulgencio.


This guy is interesting but it may be tough to lure him away from his transfer to Arkansas and a chance to improve his draft stock for next season by showing he’s healthy.
