Jason Churchill of ESPN reports:
One of, if not the biggest, opinion splits this year is with Kentwood (Wash.) High School catcher Reese McGuire. There are high-ranking scouts that see him as a surefire top-10 talent and those that appear to prefer someone else takes him. Still, the floor appears to be somewhere in the 16-21 range, while the high side starts at No. 4 with the Twins. The Pirates have seen McGuire extensively and have two picks, one at No. 9 for failing to sign Appel a year ago, and the No. 14 pick.
Connor Glassey of BA discusses here the work of Joe Delii Carri, the Pirates current Scouting Director.
Dan Kirby's recent mock draft has the Pirates selecting Jon Denny (C) and Austin Wilson (OF).
Jonathan Mayo of MLB.com ranks Ryan Stanek (P) ninth and Reese McGuire (C/3B) fourteenth.
