UPDATE (10:24 p.m.)- The Orioles lost while the Rangers won and The Diamondbacks had an off day. The 2022 MLB Draft standings have the Pirates in third place and are behind the Orioles by 5.0 games and are 4.0 games behind the second place Diamondbacks. It seems like the battle for third will happen the rest of the year. The Pirates are up by only 0.5 a game on the Rangers.
