Pirates MLB Draft Picks: Bucs Pick Josh Bell, Alex Dickerson, Colten Brewer

Here are the Pirates’ results in the 2011 MLB Draft so far:

1. Gerrit Cole, P, UCLA
2. Josh Bell, OF, Texas high school
3. Alex Dickerson, 1B, Indiana University
4. Colten Brewer, P, Texas high school

The Pirates’ draft has been a wild one so far – not only will they have to spend a ton of money to sign Cole, but Bell and Dickerson won’t be any picnic either. Bell was ranked as a top-20 player in the draft, but his commitment to the University of Texas is strong. MLB.com ranked Dickerson as a top-50 prospect in the draft.

We already discussed Bell here. Dickerson is a first baseman who doesn’t have a lot of defensive value, but has a big bat. He won the triple crown in the Big Ten conference in 2010.

Brewer is less well-known. He’s a high school pitcher who will head to junior college if he isn’t signed, although he probably will be.
