UPDATE 1:48 PM: Law now says that David Dahl is the pick, assuming Almora and Zunino are gone.
In his final mock draft, Keith Law has the Pittsburgh Pirates taking Arizona State shortstop Deven Marrero. However, the pick isn’t a lock, as Law notes. He mentions that they’re linked to Max Fried, Lucas Giolito, Chris Stratton, and David Dahl. All of this assumes that Albert Almora and Mike Zunino are off the board. Law had both hitters going in the top seven picks, with the rest of the top seven going off the board before the Pirates picked.
Tim started Pirates Prospects in 2009 from his home in Virginia, which was 40 minutes from where Pedro Alvarez made his pro debut in Lynchburg. That year, the Lynchburg Hillcats won the Carolina League championship, and Pirates Prospects was born from Tim's reporting along the way. The site has grown over the years to include many more writers, and Tim has gone on to become a credentialed MLB reporter, producing Pirates Prospects each year, and will publish his 11th Prospect Guide this offseason. He has also served as the Pittsburgh Pirates correspondent for Baseball America since 2019. Behind the scenes, Tim is an avid music lover, and most of the money he gets paid to run this site goes to vinyl records.
