Once we get to this late point in the draft, most of the players are extremely obscure, and you have to be pretty clever with the Google to find out anything about them, much less hard-to-gauge stuff like which ones the Pirates think are prospects, which ones they're really keen on signing, and which ones are excited about the idea of signing with the Pirates.

Last year, the Pirates signed eight players from rounds 31 to 50. One of those, 31st-rounder Jason Townsend, now looks like a real prospect, and two more, 41st-rounder Bryton Trepagnier and 49th-rounder Logan Pevny, might one day be prospects, in a lottery-ticket sort of way.

The point is, don't expect too much from this group. The Pirates might regard a few of them - a couple of possible candidates include Hibbing and Schalk - as interesting players if they can be lured away from college baseball scholarships. (Hibbing is committed to Iowa, while Schalk is headed to Alabama-Birmingham.)
