I was reading Baseball America today when I came across an article stating that Scheppers has recently been clocked at 93-96 and showed a great breaking ball while playing in some intrasquad games with a California Juco. A unnamed scout even said that he expected Scheppers to go in the Top-10 picks for sure.
My question is, would anyone object to the Pirates drafting Scheppers again this year? If the reports are true, then he is definitley a true #1 type of pitcher that the Pirates need at the number 4 spot. If I understand the draft process right (I probably don't) then I believe the Buccos would have to have Scheppers blessing to re-draft him?
Anyways, with the lack of a true number 2 prospect stepping up after Strasburg in this years draft I really do think the Pirates should at least entertain re-drafting Scheppers. What do you guys think?
