Today is a very important day towards the future of the Pittsburgh Pirates organization.
With the Pirates making a huge splash on Day 1, drafting Louisville catcher Henry Davis with first overall pick, and general manager Ben Cherington and Co. look to build on an important draft class with Day 2 picks.
Today, Rounds 2-10 will take place and the Pirates will add some talent to the organization. By going with a catcher yesterday, the Pirates will likely turn their focus towards the mound and take some pitching prospects today, but ultimately, talent anywhere on the diamond is feasible.
