WTM’S PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES

Skoglund is right in the Pirates’ back yard, coming from Sarasota high school, which is near the Pirates’ Spring Training facility in Bradenton, Florida.  He has a commitment to the University of Central Florida.  Baseball America compared his body type to Chicago White Sox left hander Chris Sale.  He touches 91 MPH with his fastball, and held that velocity for five innings in starts this year.  He fell on draft boards due to a thumb injury and signability concerns.
