Will Craig - 3B/1B PIT

Recommended Posts

Pirates selected Craig in the first round (22) in the 2016 First Year Draft. A corner infielder from Wake Forest. He absolutely raked slashing a .392/.537/.766 in the ACC last year. Listed at 6'3' 235. For now, it looks like he's going to stick at third base but there are concerns that he may move over to 1B. He should advance through the Pirates system rather quickly.

Certainly some sick college stats.  A 1.300+ OPS out of D1 going that late in the draft really shouldn't happen.

 

The kid pitched some in college as well.  All out of relief last year.

heard he's not much of an athelte and doesn't run very well.  probably limited to 3B (if he's quick), 1B or DH
