The Pirates take: "Even with a really deep collection of arms in the Pirates farm system, I just can't see any way that the Pirates don't add another one here unless they would take Deven Marrero. Considering recent history a higher ceiling player is more likely. Kyle Zimmer is intriguing but off the board in this scenario. Max Fried is also interesting but Mark Appel was the consensus best arm coming into the season and while he hasn't progressed much, he hasn't regressed either. Mark Appel, RHP, Stanford (previous:Correa)" My preferences if Correa is unavailable include Fried, Smoral, Cecchini, Shaffer. But, I suspect that the Pirates would take Appel if he were available with the 8th pick.
