WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE
|Drafted as a college senior, Bosnic pitched only briefly in 2020 and then mainly as a reliever in 2021. He had a 2.78 ERA and allowed only 22 hits in 50.2 IP. He fanned 78 and walked 25. He missed the 2022 season due to a flexor strain in his elbow and, about a week before the draft, announced his intention to transfer to Arkansas as a fifth-year senior. Bosnic throws primarily a fastball that averages in the low-90s but has reached 98. He also has a curve, slider and change, all of which have produced high whiff rates.
Bosnic had elbow surgery in April and the Pirates never activated him after the draft.
Bosnic should open with one of the class A affiliates in 2023, assuming he’s healthy.
