PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) — Arizona St. Shortstop Deven Marrero is projected to be the Pirates first round draft pick in the upcoming draft, and he joined Seibel, Starkey and Miller on Sportsradio 93.7 The FAN to talk about what he does well, and what he could bring to the Pirates organization if drafted by them.
Marrero described himself as a line drive hitter and said playing with wood bats at the college level this season rather than aluminum has him more major league ready.
Deven’s numbers have dropped a bit since last year, but he said the adjustment to the bats had some to do with that as well as the great pitching in the conference.
A great pitcher that came out of their conference last year was Gerrit Cole, and Deven told us about the times he faced him during his college career.
Devon does have a year of eligibility left at ASU, and told us whether or not he would consider using that rather than going pro if drafted.
We wrapped things up with Deven hearing about some of his ties to the Pirates and what he has heard about them.
