Keith Law’s Mock Draft has Pirates Taking a College Closer

By Jason Shetler

ESPN.com’s Keith Law came out with his mock draft and has the Pirates selecting Zack Burdi with their 22nd overall selection. 

Burdi is a closer at the University of Louisville. He’s a 6-3 right-hander, who throws an upper-90’s fastball that has topped out at 101 mph. His secondary pitches include an above average changeup and a decent slider. Burdi surprisingly has good command of his fastball, despite being a very hard thrower.
