-On Thursday I ranked the players at the top of the draft.

Keith Law says that he keeps hearing Pittsburgh connected to Deven Marrero at number eight. He mentions it’s a great buy low opportunity, getting a guy who was a top five pick before the year.

-In that link, Law also mentions that the talent in the first round drops off at eighth. That was my take in my rankings on Thursday, although Law has Max Fried in his top seven, and I have Lucas Giolito.


-Mike Zunino and Florida resume their schedule on Thursday.

-Deven Marrero and Arizona State resume their schedule on Friday.
