Baseball America Grades Pirates' Draft

New, 16 comments

Baseball America has a draft report card for the Pirates (subscribers only). They describe the Pirates as being "as aggressive as any team in the draft." Alongside the usual praise for Gerrit Cole and Josh Bell, BA notes that ninth-rounder Clay Holmes already can hit 94 MPH, that fifth-rounder Tyler Glasnow has the best curveball in the Pirates' draft, and that 10th-rounder Taylor Lewis and 12th-rounder Candon Myles "immediately become two of the best athletes in the Pirates' system."

My computer died yesterday and is currently on Best Buy life support (it's still under warranty, fortunately), so updates may be a little more touch-and-go than usual for the next week or two.
