MLB Mock Draft 2012: Could Lucas Giolito Fall To Pirates?

SB Nation’s Minor League Ball site has a 10-round MLB mock draft. A 10-round mock is, of course, utterly insane (far more insane than the seven-round NFL mock drafts we saw before the NFL Draft a few weeks ago, which were already pretty insane), given the number of players involved and how obscure MLB Draft prospects tend to be after the first 15 picks of so. But it’s all in good fun, so let’s play along.

This draft has high school pitcher Lucas Giolito falling to the Pirates at No. 8, which is an outcome that would excite a lot of Pirates fans — Giolito is the top high school pitching prospect in the draft. (He’s currently recovering from an elbow sprain, however.) The Astros take Stanford hurler Mark Appel first overall. Arizona State shortstop Deven Marrero, who some draft experts have connected to the Pirates, falls to the White Sox at No. 13.
