2011 MLB Draft, Day Three: Open Thread

Rounds 31-50 today. The Pirates rarely sign too many players drafted between rounds 31 and 50, but it's certainly possible they could grab a high-upside backup plan or two, so it's worth keeping an eye on.

Players from Louisiana are the new Zack this year, apparently. Rosado was selected by the Rockies in the 11th round in 2010.

35th-rounder Reid Mathews has a commitment to Austin Peay.

Hey, it's a Marshall guy! 36th-rounder Isaac Ballou appears to mostly be a speed player at this point.

39th-rounder Rand Ravnaas was a first-team All-Big East player this year.

42nd-rounder Nick Hibbing is committed to Iowa and would therefore probably be pretty tough to sign. He throws 88-91 MPH, with a changeup that he has apparently already worked on a lot, and also a curve.

46th-rounder Jeff Schalk has a commitment to Alabama-Birmingham, whose coach calls him (probably extremely optimistically) "one of the best left-handed high school hitters in the country." He appears likely to head to college and will apparently require a substantial bonus if he signs.

47th-rounder Jordan Deluca is from the Saxton area, southeast of Altoona.

How predictable was it that the Pirates would take a Texas high school pitcher named Zachary?
