WTM’S PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES

Welmon was taken in the 34th round of the 2014 draft, and he was the 17th right-handed pitcher the Pirates took up to that point.  He doesn’t have any plus pitches, but he throws four pitches for strikes and has an advanced feel for pitching.  Welmon hits the low-90′s with his fastball and uses his slider, curve and change-up to keep hitters guessing.  He has started for three seasons at Loyola and improved each year.  Assuming he signs this late in the draft, he should be a solid starter in the pros with a decent chance to advance far.  He was ranked 174th overall by Baseball America.
