UPDATE (10:43 a.m.) The Arizona Diamondbacks have outright Cole Tucker to Triple-A Reno. The former Pirate was batting a .229/.290/.289 slash line for the Diamondbacks Triple-A club.
UPDATE (10:36 a.m.) Thanks to Down on the Farm on Twitter, we have a chart of each team’s WAR with draft picks since 2010. Can you find the Pirates in the chart?
Here is a look at drafted WAR by all organizations since 2010. Astros in the lead by quite a bit. The Angels, Tigers, and Yankees have accumulated the least amount of value through the draft. Angels are not last as I previously Tweeted, but they are pretty close to last https://t.co/ZzPwNj87IY pic.twitter.com/fDQg6djQKx
