As part of a new weekly segment—which will be a subscriber feature going forward, but we’re giving this one away—we sent video of a prospect to a scout for an in-depth review. This week’s subject is Pirates catching prospect Reese McGuire, currently playing for low Class A West Virginia. McGuire was the 14th overall selection in last year’s draft and the recipient of a $2.369 million bonus. This video was captured on April 17 at Kannapolis.
Because the scout’s comments lasted far longer than the video, his opinion has been distilled into a smaller, digestible portion.
