Pirates DVR: First Look At The Day Three Draft Picks

With the minors on break, today’s Daily Video Rundown looks at the newest draft picks by the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Miguel Fulgencio

This may end up being one of the more interesting stories out of this draft class. Fulgencio started out as a running back at Oklahoma State, transferred to community college as a position player, switched to the mound during the COVID stoppage and put together a couple of great years as a pitcher.

Julian Bosnic

Bosnic was drafted in the 16th round last year by the Giants, but returned to school for his senior season. He unfortunately didn’t pitch due to an injury but put up decent numbers the year prior. In 50 2/3 innings, Bosnic struck out 78 batters and posted a 2.84 ERA.

He was set to be potentially the ace of the staff going into the season until the injury wiped out his year. He’s also in the transfer portal currently, and may attend Arkansas next year, meaning he isn’t a guarantee to sign despite being a senior.

Josiah Sightler

The Pirates took a teammate of Bosnic with their following round selection, picking up slugging first baseman Josiah Sightler. Here’s a look a massive home run he hit while with South Carolina. He hit a total of 15 his senior year on campus.

Nick Cimillo

In the 16th round, the Pirates selected Rutgers catcher Nick Cimillo, who finished this past season with 16 home runs.

Yoel Tejeda

The 19th round pick of the Pirates was the 217th ranked player on MLB Pipeline. This was more than likely their big fish (quite literally) they will chase after on day three. Standing at 6’7″, Tejeda has two-way potential and a commitment to Florida, so he will be hard to sign.

Anthony began writing over 10 years ago, starting a personal blog to cover the 2011 MLB draft, where the Pirates selected first overall. After bouncing around many websites covering hockey, he refocused his attention to baseball, his first love when it comes to sports. He eventually found himself here at Pirates Prospects in late 2021, where he covers the team’s four full season minor league affiliates.

So, folks who are dismissive of the day three draftees may want to do more research.
