Yesterday the Pirates took some high upside guys, drafting Austin Meadows and Reese McGuire in the first round, then taking Blake Taylor in the second. Today they continued going for upside, adding a lot of guys who will need some development, and maybe an adjustment or two, but have the tools, pitches, and skills to pay off if the Pirates’ development system can make the proper changes.
“Factoring in some things that matter to us, we ended up with the three college and the one high school arm in the tail end of the draft, and a good blend in the middle. A couple of shortstops. It was a situation where we looked at the players of similar values at the time of the selection and picked the one we felt best about in the room,” Pirates General Manager Neal Huntington said.
Below are the players the Pirates picked on day two, as well as some analysis on all of the individual players below.
